Officers responding to a reported domestic violence call Saturday morning fatally wounded a suspect in suburban Carol Stream, according to a release.
Around 4:15 a.m., officers responded to a domestic situation at the Village Brook Apartments located at 260 E. St. Charles Road. Officers encountered a “tense, uncertain, and rapidly evolving situation,” a release said.
Officers discharged their weapons at the alleged suspect who was struck. Suffering critical injuries, the suspect was taken to Central DuPage Hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said.
The DuPage County coroner’s office identified the man as Isaac Goodlow III, 30.
The fatal shooting is being investigated by the Public Integrity Team of the DuPage Metropolitan Emergency Response and Investigative Team. The two officers who were involved in the incident were placed on paid leave during the investigation, the news release said. The investigation will last for an “indeterminate amount of time.”
The Carol Stream Police Department extended its condolences to the family and friends of the individual who lost his life this morning, the release said.
Goodlow’s brother, Michael Pigram, said he received a phone call from police in the early morning hours Saturday that Goodlow had been shot. He rushed to Village Brook Apartments but wasn’t provided with any additional information as he waited at the scene, he said. He expressed frustration with officers’ lack of communication.
“I was asking everybody what happened,” Pigram said. “Why wouldn’t you want to help a concerned family member? They’re withholding information.”
Pigram said he still didn’t know why his brother was shot or who else was involved with the incident. Goodlow didn’t own a gun, he added.
“I’m devastated,” Pigram said. “My brother was a family man. We all loved him. He was a very loving person, willing to help anyone with anything.”
