A man was shot and killed by police Friday night in north suburban Round Lake, the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force said.

An officer also sustained non-life threatening injuries in the incident, which occurred just before 11 p.m. in the 0-100 block of North Magillis Drive.

Police said they received three 911 calls about a suspicious man banging on doors and trying to break into homes.

The officer arrived on scene and located the offender, who police said came after the officer with a piece of glass.

"When the officer made contact, a struggle then ensued between the officer and the offender. The officer did discharge their firearm and the offender was struck," said Detective Chris Covelli, of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

The offender, identified as Michael Musson, 22, of Round Lake, later died of his injuries.
