Daniel Brown of Indianapolis is facing first-degree murder charges in Tuesday’s shootout with police and subsequent standoff in Englewood. Brown is charged with killing Daniel Jackson during the hourslong incident that saw Chicago Police, Illinois State Troopers and federal agents respond after Brown allegedly shot Chicago Police captain Edward Kulbida while officers attempted to execute a warrant for his arrest.

Brown also faces two counts of attempted murder and one count each of aggravated battery and being a fugitive from justice. Police Supt. Garry McCarthy revealed that, in addition to Kulbida, a detective who works with a U.S. Marshal’s task force suffered a gunshot wound to the leg during the shootout. Thirty-nine shots were fired during the exchange: 11 by Brown; 20 by Chicago police and eight by federal agents.

McCarthy said Brown and Jackson, who is believed to be the boyfriend of Brown’s sister, were both considered “offenders” in the standoff. When police were finally able to gain access to Brown’s sister’s apartment, they found Jackson dead inside. Police are still investigating Jackson’s death, but McCarthy said forensic evidence indicates Jackson was killed by Brown during the standoff.

Brown is still wanted on an attempted murder charge in Indianapolis last weekend. He is accused of shooting a friend of his fiancée Saturday after she intervened in a domestic dispute. Authorities claim Brown then fled on foot, hijacked a car in a hotel parking lot, returned to his fiancée’s apartment, left in his own car, and shot two more people at separate locations before stealing a truck and driving to Chicago.
