ROBBINS, Ill. — Several law enforcement agencies are investigating after a police officer shot and killed a bar security guard who had detained a shooting suspect.

Robbins police initially responded to a report of a shooting at the bar early Sunday morning. Robbins Police Chief Roy Wells said the shooting began as an argument inside the bar, reported ABC7.

Midlothian Police were called to assist and one of the officers entering the bar saw security guard Jemel Roberson holding a gun. One of the responding Midlothian officers fatally shot Roberson.

“Upon arrival officers learned there were several gunshot victims inside the bar. A Midlothian Officer encountered a subject with a gun and was involved in an Officer involved shooting,” Midlothian police Chief Dan Delaney said in a statement.

A witness told WGNTV that Roberson had pinned the suspected shooter to the floor and was holding him at gunpoint, when police responded.

“He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back, with his gun in his back, like, ‘Don’t move,'” Adam Harris told WGNTV.

According to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, Roberson had a Firearms Owner Identification Card, but no concealed-carry license.

Four others were injured in the incident, including the suspected shooter.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office and the State Police Public Integrity Task Force are investigating.
