An armed person was shot and killed by a SWAT team Tuesday afternoon during an incident at the 5/3 Bank location at 275 S. Weber in Romeoville. The Village of Romeoville says officers were called to the bank after receiving multiple calls that an armed person was inside the bank and demanding that police respond. The subject had fired a gun multiple times in the bank.

Officers were able to communicate with the person who eventually let hostages inside the bank leave. A Will County SWAT team engaged the subject who was shot by an officer. The subject was taken to a hospital where he died from the gunshot wound.

Illinois State Police are investigating. Police say it is unclear whether the incident was meant as a bank robbery or not.
