A man suspected of shooting a 62-year-old in Calumet City remains barricaded in his home, as negotiations continue for over 14 hours.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting about 1:45 p.m. in the 100 block of North State Street, according to Calumet City spokesman Sean Howard. They found the 62-year-old with multiple gunshot wounds, possibly sustained during a confrontation with another man, Howard said.

He was transported to an area trauma center where his condition remained unknown.

The suspected shooter, a 52-year-old man, fled the scene to his home in the 100 block of Maple Court, Howard said.

When officers attempted to make contact and approach the home several shots were fired at police, according to Howard.

Officers did not return fire and the South Suburban Emergency Response Team was called to the scene, Howard said.

Negotiators have made contact with the man and efforts have been ongoing for over 14 hours.

Nearby portions of the Bishop-Ford were closed until about 3:30 a.m.
