Man Shot In Head In Shootout With Maywood Cops

MAYWOOD, Ill. (WBBM/CBS) — A Maywood man is hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the head after allegedly getting into a shootout with police early this morning.

Police were called to a home in the 2000 block of South 11th Avenue at around 1:30 a.m. by a woman saying her husband had pistol-whipped her, according Maywood Chief Tim Curry.

He says 40-year-old Marion Brown allegedly fired a shot at officers, hitting one in the officer’s bullet-resistant vest. The officers returned fire.

Curry says police tried to negotiate with Brown and found him unresponsive with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head.

Brown, the victim and three police officers were taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.

Curry says they don’t know Brown’s condition, nor whether his wound was self-inflicted or from police.

Curry says two officers and a police supervisor were evaluated. He says all are physically fine. The officers were released and the supervisor was still there – a little shaken up.

Children in the home were removed and were not injured, according to police.

Curry says the department has responded to a call from the home at least once so far this year.

      • Nichole Gaston

        Yes Indeed FOUL PLAY

  • Missing You Much

    I continue to read all these articles brcause I just cannot believe Marion Brown has left this earth at the age of 40 and what is also so sad are all the negative comments from people that just sit on the internet maybe in their tralior homes and use these comments as a way to post their ingorance for those of you that post crazy messages this maybe you some day and instead of people saying something positive this is what your children will see. To the Brown/Willingham children your father was not this crazy man TRUST me I know marraige situations just got out of hand and instead of knowing when to leave he tried everything to make it work maybe if they were honest with each other he would still be here but we all have to die someday it was just his time so sad he died this way but I enjoed the times we had together and will remember him in that way. Stay strong and pray for his soul and your mothers strength and I pray that the truth be exposed so that he may rest in peace.

    R.I.P. Main your special friend

      I know we all do not believe that he is gone so soon. Marion Brown did not do wrong to anyone he was a loving in caring father, brother, uncle, friend, nephew, and husband. He is going to be truly missed by many. No he was not a crazy man at all. Brown wanted the best for his family like you said that he held on tried to make his relationship work for the better and worst of it. WE LOVE YOU MARION RIP MY BRO
