DES PLAINES (CBS) — A police-involved shooting in northwest suburban Des Plaines has left one man dead Sunday afternoon.

In a statement issued late Sunday, the Des Plaines Police Department said officers were involved in a shooting in the 1900 block of East Touhy Avenue about 3:12 p.m. The statement did not indicate what led up to the shooting.
