UPDATE 1/21/20 AT 11:00 A.M.
A peaceful ending came, following a police standoff for a wanted murder suspect, Tuesday morning in Montgomery.
For over three hours, Montgomery and Kane County Sheriff Deputies were waiting for a wanted Michigan man, who is accused of murder and three weapon charges, to peacefully surrender from a home in the 700 block of Oakton Rd. in Montgomery.
That location is bounded by Route 30, Aucutt Road, Orchard Road and Kevin Drive, west of Route 31. For a short time, a portion of Route 30 was shut down.
Kane County Undersheriff Pat Gengler gave this information.
Police were after Scott Jones, age 35, who was inside the duplex.
Gengler said the female infant was under age one. Authorities did not know if the child was related to Jones.
West Aurora School District 129 was notified of the incident, according to Gengler.
Some residents were unaware of what had occurred.
Montgomery Police initially responded to a domestic disturbance report at 5:15 a.m. but learned that Jones was inside during the call. Three adults and two children also had left the house. Police reports indicate the residence was connected to a relative of Jones.
The US Marshall’s Task Force had been searching for Jones since September. Jones had shot and killed a 20-year old man in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
The law enforcement response surrounding the house came from Oswego, Plainfield, North Aurora, South Elgin and included the Kane County Bomb Squad, Swat Team, and the Mobile Command Center.
It's not clear if any additional charges will be filed against Jones in Illinois. No injuries were reported. Jones will be extradited back to Michigan.
