An Edwardsville Police officer and another person have been shot and injured while officers were serving a warrant in Edwardsville. The officer and a Madison County Sheriff’s Deputy were serving a warrant in the 300 block of South Fillmore Drive at around 7:30am today when the struggle took place.
Illinois State Police are investigating the incident that reportedly involved officers working with a Cyber Crimes Task Force. The officers approached the home and apparently spoke to a man at the front door, when a weapon was displayed. The two officers and the man struggled over the weapon when the shooting took place. An ISP spokesman says both the officer and suspect were conscious when they were taken to the hospital, with the officer reportedly shot in the hand and the suspect in the head. The Big Z will have more details on the case as they are released.
