Armed Barricaded Subject Turned Out to Be Possible "Man with a Gun" at Dryden Apartments on Dryden Place Near Kensington Rd, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:09 AM Friday to a report of a barricaded, armed subject in an apartment complex that turned out to be a report of a "man with a gun" at 5 South Dryden Place Arlington Heights, IL. Police immediately blocked Dryden Place between Kensington Road and Miners Street.

The NIPAS Emergency Services Team (with a SWAT-like response) responded to the scene. Two larger command and/or tactical vehicles, and a Bearcat armored vehicle were on the scene, but left by about 10:30 a.m.

Police sources say that as police assessed the incident, they understood on the scene that five witnesses reported seeing a man with a gun. The police source did not release a description of the gunman, and confirmed that police never had any communication or any visual contact with a gunman.

Police searched the building and provided safety and warmth for two children that were at the apartment building. Firefighter/paramedics welcomed the two children, who were escorted away from the apartment building for safety as police searched the apartment building. The children were met by firefighter/paramedics in an ambulance in the middle of the street on Dryden Place. Paramedics initially staged north of Miner School near Miner Street.

Firefighter/paramedics did not transport any patients to the hospital. Police report that no people were injured in the incident. The situation at the scene was resolved by about 10:30 a.m.

It is unknown if there was a language barrier, or otherwise, how the man with a gun call was dispatched as an armed, barricaded subject.
