Morris Daily Herald
At 12:18 p.m. members of the McHenry County Sheriff's Office Patrol Division went to the 2900 block of Northwest Road in unincorporated Marengo Township to serve a domestic battery warrant on Edward P. Bolen, according to a release from Sheriff Keith Nygren's office.
When police entered the home, Bolen pointed a handgun at them and the deputies fired gunshots but did not strike him, the release said. He then barricaded himself in a basement room.
