A police officer found dead at a home in Unincorporated West Chicago died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to investigators.

Neighbors said they heard what sounded like a gunshot about 2:30 p.m. Monday. Police and emergency crews arrived a short time later. Chief Dan Callahan with the Wayne Police Department says the woman who died had been an officer with his department for ten years.
