SHARE Man shot by Joliet police ordered held on $500K bond

A man armed with two rifles who was shot by police officers last week in southwest suburban Joliet has been released from the hospital and is being held on a $500,000 bond.

Raymond E. Hansen, 41, is charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, two felony counts of domestic battery causing bodily harm, and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery, according to Joliet police.

Two officers went to a home in the 2400 block of Rockwood Drive about 7:50 p.m. March 10 after a woman reported a domestic disturbance, according to a statement from Joliet Police Chief Brian Benton.

The woman flagged officers down around the corner from the home, and said she was the victim of domestic violence, police said. She told the officers the man was still inside the home and “heavily armed.”

Officers walked to the home and the man came out carrying two semi-automatic assault rifles, police said. He pointed a rifle at each of the officers, and they told him to drop the weapons.

He refused, and the officers fired, shooting him several times, police said. He was taken into custody and “additional weapons” were recovered from his body, police said.

The man, later identified as Hansen, was taken to Silver Cross Hospital and later airlifted to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was originally listed in critical condition, police said.

The officers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries, police said. Both have been placed on administrative leave pending a review of the shooting.

Hansen was released from the hospital Sunday and booked into the Will County Adult Detention Facility, according to Benton.

Hansen was ordered held on a $500,000 bond in court Monday, according to the Will County sheriff’s office. He is next scheduled to appear in court April 6.
