An Aurora police officer today shot a person who was allegedly armed with knives at a house in the 900 block of Colorado Avenue in Aurora.

Bolingbrook — A Bolingbrook man was found shot inside his home Monday afternoon and later died from related injuries, Bolingbrook police said.

A suspect in the shooting has been taken into custody.

Bolingbrook police were called to a residence in the 300 block of Walnut Circle about 2 p.m. Monday after a person was reported shot, according to a news release from Bolingbrook police.

Officers responding to the call found a man in the home suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment, according to the release.

The victim was identified as Devon D. Davis, 33, of Bolingbrook, who later was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said.

The incident is suspected to be the result of a family conflict. Witnesses said the alleged shooter left the home on foot before police arrived, police said.

Bolingbrook residents were advised Monday afternoon to avoid the area just south of Boughton Road and west of Route 53 as police searched for a suspect in the shooting. School lockdowns and shelter-in-place orders were put into place and later lifted.

The incident remains under investigation. Bolingbrook police are working in conjunction with the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office on formal charges.
