The Kane County Major Crimes Task Force is looking to talk to anyone who witnessed the police-involved incident at Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway Wednesday about 3:15 p.m., according to a news release.
A Kane County Sheriff K-9 police dog was killed in the incident that began after a car chase from South Elgin to the intersection of Fabyan and Randall. The suspect also was killed.
Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain said that Aurora police received a report of a carjacking at a Jiffy Lube on Orchard Road south of Interstate 88. A license plate reading camera tracked the stolen car, a Honda Accord, at Route 25 and Stearns Road in South Elgin about 2:30 p.m.
A sheriff’s deputy found the Honda near Randall and Silver Glen roads and gave chase. The pursuit continued into Geneva.
Hain said deputies returned fire when the suspect displayed a handgun, killing the suspect. The K-9, Hudson, died “in the exchange of gunfire.”
According to a news release from the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect had fled from other officers from various agencies in recent days.
