An armed suspect is dead, and a Pana Police officer is recovering after being shot after an early morning outside of Pana Tuesday.
An Illinois State Police press release says Christian County Sheriff's officers responded to a "man with a gun" call.
Responding to the call, a Pana Police was shot inside a house. The suspect then fled to the roof. The Sheriff then requested Illinois State Police Air Operations to attempt negotiations. That's when the suspect set a fire, shot at police who then returned fire fatally striking the unidentified suspect.
Three other individuals in the house were detained for questioning. State Police say they have not determined a motive.
Christian County says Illinois State Police are handling the investigation.
