Attempted 'Suicide by Cop' in Kane
Nichols immediately called for backup, and repeatedly asked Walker to drop the knives while walking backward and keeping about 15 feet between himself and Walker. The incident moved from Janeway, to Welsh Street, then to Moffit Avenue and onto Hacker Street. Steve Hale of the Mount Jewett Police Department was eventually able to use a stun gun on Walker.
At Kane Community Hospital Walker made threats to people who were there, and others who were not there. He also spit on hospital personnel while being treated.
Charges of felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person have been filed in Engaman’s office. He has not been arraigned yet.
