An officer involved shooting in Nokomis on Friday night has left one man dead. David L. Hicks of Nokomis was shot and killed when a Nokomis police officer felt threatened by Hicks’ actions after responding to a disturbance call on Frederick Street.
According to the Illinois State Police investigation, Hicks had left the residence on foot prior to the officer’s arrival. The officer made contact with Hicks in the 100 block of Sherman Street at which point Hick’s actions made the officer fear for his life.
