Off Duty Robbery Foiled
An off-duty Chicago police detective shot and killed a convicted felon who police say tried to rob him this morning in the Englewood neighborhood.
The shooting happened around 11:15 a.m. in the 6200 block of South Honore Street as the detective was doing work on a home he owned on the block. The man approached the officer, pointed a gun at the detective and demanded money, according to police.
Sherrod Griffin, 44, of the 6100 block of South Whipple Street, was shot once in the abdomen and prounced dead at the Stein Institute, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
If Daley was serious about reducing crime, it is a well documented fact that crime drops when Concealed Carry laws are put into effect. And the chances of running across a repeat offender drop precipitously once they've been shot a few times and achieve room temperature.
