The deputy – Jake Keltner – is with the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department, CBS Chicago reported. The McHenry County sheriff now says that Jacob Keltner has died.

ABC 7 earlier reported via sources that “a local officer assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s Service Fugitive Task Force was shot during a joint operation.”

One television station also reported that “a US Marshal was shot in the head” as he attempted to serve a warrant at the hotel. The shooter escaped through a window and “is currently at-large,” Fox 32 reported, also via sources.

Officials are now waiting for Brown to be transferred back to Winnebago County.
