DeWitt Police warn neighbors of suicidal man who may have a gun

DeWitt Police are warning neighbors of a suicidal man who may have a gun. Neighbors were warned about the situation through the emergency contact system.

DeWitt Police are searching for a man in the Franklin Park area who is threatening to take his own life. The 28 year-old man has threatened suicide before. "This is not the first time he's done this," DeWitt Police Chief Eugene Conway said.

"We knew he was in that area, but we were not able to get a perimeter around him, so that triggered the warning," Conway said.

The man, who police did not identify, has made suicidal threats before. He claims to have a gun, but police say they have no concrete information that he has a weapon.
