Behind the curve on this one as we were quite busy all day. Channel 7
and the Sun Times
provide the coverage. Story is sort of amusing actually:
Spokesperson Pat Camden told ABC7 News that when the officers got out of the car they took cover, they announced who they were and told the suspect to drop the gun.
"The individual turns, keeping shooting down the block. He turned with the gun. At the officers at this point. They fire and in defense of their lives. The subject is hit I believe twice in the leg," Camden said.
Seems to us that the subject may have been deafened by the sound of his own gunshots and didn't hear the police announce their presence behind him (from cover - very wise move) and he kept shooting down the block even after the cops said they were behind him. Too bad for the knucklehead. Good job guys.
