Lupton attacking Charlotte Lupton and her husband, Carl Lupton. According to Lowery, an officer he didn’t identify shot the attacker.

The Daily Chronicle in DeKalb reports ( ) Charlotte and Carl Lupton were taken to Kishwaukee Hospital with multiple stab wounds. Lowery did not say what prompted the attack.

Because it was an officer-involved shooting, Illinois State Police will conduct an investigation into the incident.
