Des Plaines cops fatally shoot man

Des Plaines police shot and killed a man on Sunday afternoon at a strip mall in the northwestern suburb, authorities said this morning.

The incident occurred at about 3:12 p.m. in the 1900 block of East Touhy Avenue, Des Plaines police said in a news release.

Authorities didn't say how the incident unfolded but said the offender, Carlos Salgado, 44, of the 400 block of West Touhy Avenue in Des Plaines, died at the scene.

Police said that officers sustained injuries and were treated at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge but didn't indicate how many officers were hurt, or how the injuries occurred.

The Illinois State police, which often investigates police-involved shootings in municipalities outside of Chicago, would be probing Sunday's shooting, authorities said.
