32-year veteran of the Fox Lake Police Department, Gliniewicz was shot while on duty around 8 a.m. local time on Tuesday. The officer was pursuing three suspects – two white men and a black man – described as suspicious. They were also considered to be armed and dangerous.
Gliniewicz died at the scene. He was the father of four boys.
Helicopters were dispatched to give assistance to around 100 officers early on Wednesday. About 48 police dogs are also aiding in the search. The manhunt involves the FBI, US Marshals and SWAT teams. Residents have been urged to stay indoors.
