Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson confirmed with Local 4 News the man was pronounced dead at Genesis Medical Center, Illini Campus, Silvis. He said an autopsy is pending Monday.
The incident happened shortly before 2 p.m. at Loma Linda apartments, 10th Avenue A Court, Silvis. Our Local 4 News crew, the only station at the scene, saw an officer recover a gun from the area.
Neighbors told our Local 4 News crew someone was shot and taken to a hospital. Silvis and East Moline police and Rock Island County deputies were at the scene.
