OGLE COUNTY, Ill. (WIFR) - A 32-year-old man faces a dozen charges in connection with an Ogle County shooting that sent three members of law enforcement to the hospital.

Jonathon Gounaris is charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, three counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, three counts of aggravated battery and two counts of possession without a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID). The Ogle County State’s Attorney’s Office announced the charges June 18.

According to Ogle County Sheriff Brian VanVickle, law enforcement was called June 12 to a home in the 400 block of Wild Rice Lane in Lost Lake for reports of someone threatening to commit suicide and homicide. After multiple failed attempts to talk to the person, later identified as Gounaris, authorities sent an emergency response team into the home.

Investigators say Gounaris then opened fire on law enforcement spurring a shootout. Three members of the emergency response team and Gounaris were hurt.

In a video news release shared June 18, Sheriff VanVickle said tactical medic Tyler Carls with the Rochelle Fire Department was hit twice in the body armor. Oregon Police Department Sergeant Tad Dominski was shot in the upper arm and Lieutenant Jason Ketter with the Ogle County Sheriff’s Office was shot in the face. Carls and Dominski were taken to KSB Hospital in Dixon and released. VanVickle said Ketter was flown to a Rockford hospital for surgery and released Friday, June 14. Gounaris was also taken to a local hospital for surgery after he was shot in the stomach.

Body camera footage from the shootout was also released by the sheriff’s office. Viewer discretion is advised.

During the investigation, detectives reportedly found multiple guns, a fixed-blade knife, pepper spray and ballistic armor inside the home.

Illinois State Police is handling the investigation into the officer-involved shooting.
