--I listened to this live for most of the night.
Great job by Chicago PD and all the assisting agencies. They evacuated the building and set up a secure scene for SWAT to work in.
And, it sounds like the CPD Captain will recover just fine.--

CHICAGO (WLS) --
A six-hour standoff in the 7200-block of South Lowe Avenue left Captain Ed Kulbida wounded, one suspect dead and one suspect in custody.
The standoff ended just before midnight. Police found one person dead and apprehended another suspect upon entering the apartment building.
"They used a flash bang and there was still no response. At that point it was time to make entry. They did it in a progressive fashion. I was listening to it the whole time. They did it perfectly. They did a really outstanding job," Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said.
Police have not said how the suspect died - if police shot and killed him or if he killed himself. But multiple sources said Daniel Brown, 42, is one of the suspects involved in the standoff. Police have not named either of the suspects.
The standoff began around 6 p.m. Tuesday when Chicago police and U.S. marshals were serving a murder warrant for Brown in the city's Englewood neighborhood.
Brown was wanted in connection with three shootings and a carjacking in Indiana Saturday night. He was seen in surveillance video taken from an Indianapolis motel, according to the ABC affiliate there. Police said he took off from the area after the incidents and hasn't been found since.
Brown used to live in Chicago. His current address is listed in Indianapolis. Relatives said his sister lives in the South Side building where the standoff took place.
Brown's family in Chicago said he is a former member of the military and had been suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. They think he may not have been taking his medicine.
When police arrived to serve the warrant for Brown, someone opened fire from the first floor.
