DeKalb alerts residents to possible armed man in area

DeKalb residents received text and telephone alerts Sunday morning warning about a possible armed man in the area.

About 8 a.m. the City of DeKalb sent out a
text alert warning residents of a white man, possibly armed, wearing a camouflage-patterned jacket, blue jeans and white shoes that fled on foot from the area near Interstate 88
and Peace Road.

The alert said the man may still be in the area.

DeKalb Police confirmed the text alert was sent out to warn citizens, but said the incident was being handled by Illinois State Police.

Calls to the state police were not immediately returned.

This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
