There were indications at the crime scene that a struggle occurred, but test results were inconclusive in determining whether Gliniewicz fired his service weapon, Filenko said.

Highly unlikely that a person could shoot themselves twice.
Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Commander George Filenko revealed Wednesday that Lt. Joseph Gliniewicz had been stealing and laundering money from the Fox Lake Police Explorer Post over the past seven years, using thousands of dollars for personal purchases, mortgages, travel expenses, gym memberships, adult websites and to facilitate person loans. He also said Gliniewicz forged signatures in official documents.

Is it out of the realm of possibility that he was offed to shut him up? No, not at all. But I'm not so quick to dismiss it being a staged suicide, especially if he himself was taking money that wasn't his.
