No officers were hurt. Police recovered a small-caliber handgun at the scene.
The dead man was identified as Angelo Brown, 35. Sgt. Matt Weller of the Illinois State Police said Brown is from the St. Louis area. The agency is handling the investigation.
Authorities said Belleville police officers were called to the first block of West Pheasantwood Drive for a disturbance at 9:43 p.m. Thursday. The apartment complex is near Highway 161.
The caller told police that a man at the apartment was drunk and had a gun.
A man who was shot and killed by Belleville police last week after officers say he fired at them was a member of the National Revolutionary Black Panther Party, organization officials said.
A St. Louis-area resident, Angelo Brown was also a national officer within the organization, and was the leader for the party in St. Louis. Members from across the country are planning a protest over the shooting, but haven’t set a date.
