Firefighter Investigator Shot
Stray round? Targeted shooting while he was collecting evidence? No one is saying.
- After a lone arson investigator was shot early Sunday as he checked an alley where a Molotov cocktail had been tossed against a house, the Chicago Fire Department will change its policy and have investigators work in pairs, the fire commissioner said.
The incident was the first time that a firefighter had been shot and wounded since about 1968, said Fire Commissioner Raymond Orozco. Paramedics have been shot at over the years, but department officials could not recall any being hit.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Keep an eye on these guys - yeah, we have our rivalries, but they're still on the First Responder team.
