CHICAGO — Members of the McHenry County sheriff's SWAT team shot a man with bean bag rounds Saturday afternoon after the man barricaded himself in a room and brandished a knife, according to police.

Officers responded to the 2900 block of Northwest Road in Marengo Township just after noon Saturday to serve a domestic battery warrant on Edward P. Bolen at his address.

McHenry County sheriff's deputies saw Bolen inside the residence and made contact with him and a roommate, according to police.
