Preliminary information indicates at approximately 3:50 p.m., Adams County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the area of 5th Street and West Radio Road south of Quincy on a report of a man with a handgun.  As officers approached, the man reportedly pointed the handgun at officers.  Officers discharged their firearms, striking the subject.  Officers rendered medical aid to the subject who died from his injuries at the scene.

The deceased is Bradley S. Havermale, 29, of Quincy.

Adams County Sheriff Tony Grootens said the three ASCO officers involved were Sgt. Sam Smith, Investigator John Schone and Deputy Logan Peter. All three were taken to Blessing Hospital for evaluation and none were injured.
