(TheRedAlertNews.com) – BREAKING NOW: It has happened again. One of America’s true heroes, the men and women who put on a police uniform and go out into the most violent streets in America to make those deadly streets safer, was gunned down and killed by a thug on the crime-ridden streets of Chicago.
In this case, as the New York Post notes in “Chicago police officer shot and killed while responding to domestic call: officials“:
“A Chicago police officer was shot and killed on the city’s Southwest side on Wednesday, police officials confirmed.
“The male cop was shot shortly around 4:45 p.m. in Gage Park in the 5200 block of South Spaulding Avenue, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown told reporters at a press conference.
“Two police cruisers responded to a domestic-related report of a woman being chased down the street by a man with a gun, Brown said.
“One car knocked on the door of the residence involved while the second car engaged with the gunman, who ran away from officers.
“Officers pursued the man, who at one point turned around and shot at them multiple times “at close range,” striking one of the officers, Brown said.” [emphasis added]
Tragically, that heroic officer, a five-year veteran of the force, died of his wounds.
Officials said the officer “comes from ‘a family of public servants,’ who is ‘taking this tragedy very hard.'”
The 18-year-old thug who shot the officer was shot in the head by police, and he is hospitalized in critical condition.
