Police Kill Assailant in 011

A man wielding an illegal firearm was removed from this mortal plane by officers in the 011th District tonight:
  • A man was fatally shot by Chicago police this evening on the city’s West Side, said Independent Police Review Authority Deputy Chief Carlos Weeden.

    No police officers were injured in the police-involved shooting, police said.

    The shooting occurred at 7:18 p.m. on the 4100 block of West Lexington Street, said Weeden. The IPRA investigates shootings involving Chicago police officers.

    Police at the scene in the Lawndale neighborhood said officers exchanged fire with two men in the alley of the residential area lined with bungalows and row-houses.

All police are OK at this report. Well done officers.

Soooo?

In light of all these jack-holes pointing and discharging weapons at The Police (on AND off duty) heaving chunks of concrete through windows of squads and running off-duty coppers off the road and other assorted silly shit, riddle us this oh ye powers (in your own crowded and overheated minds) that be...

How long are you muthafuckahs (daley inc., the media etc.) going to sit astride the bleached bones of this very dead horse named "The Police Are Out Of Control" jerking the reins and yelling "giddyap horsie" in light of what has been going on?

Your fucking constituents are the ones way the fuck out of control!

Good on the coppers for handling business.

The fools in charge are doing everything they can not to give us in Patrol the help we really need.

The toilet has overflowed...

It brought tears to me that in what sounds like a ferocious exchange of fire none of our officers were injured. What a blessing. You may get little support or gratitude from the citizens in the community but there are many, many of us out there who appreciate your courage, efforts and sacrifice. Thank you.

Thank God the cops are ok. It says in the Trib that neighbors heard between 15 and 20 shots exchanged between police & the bad guys, and one got away.
Please be careful out there! I know the cops in 011
are grateful to have Washington back at the helm.

Was at the scene of the shooting tonight. There were so many shell casings that it makes my stomach turn to realize that the outcome could have been much worse. Thank the good Lord our guys are ok.

You know, we all talk about this job and about all of the "bullshit" that we encounter on a daily basis. But when things like this happen, we are handed a stark reminder that this shit is for real. It's life and death. While standing at the scene and looking into the faces of the officers involved, I could almost see all of the thoughts that I know I would be thinking if it had been me, in their eyes. The looks on their faces will be something I will never forget. This job that we all chose can turn from "routine" to chaos in the blink of an eye, and only then will we know if we're truly prepared to handle it. This isn't cops and robbers or some fictional tv show. This is all of us vs. people that have no value for human life. That's a harsh reality that we can't forget when we get up and go to work everyday.
I know this post is rambling a bit, but this shooting made me think about things...and I wasn't even involved. Again, thank God the officers are ok and I hope they are able handle all of the emotions and stress that must go along with being involved in a shooting. Most of us think we're invincible, but when something like this happens, we are all incredibly human again.

I must have heard that, but it all went out the window when she said the "victim" is still dead on the scene. No victims were killed thankfully, only an OFFENDER.

Don't forget to make sure u shoot till the threat is completely gone, as many times as needed. It's your life make sure you protect it and your partners. No more death penalty thanks to left wing nut Quinn.

Great job officers! If you have not taken the "active shooter" 2 day course, which is on company time at near north do it. As a KMA vet with 25 years on, I thought that I knew everything about being "The police"! So with an open mind i took the class, and it taught a lot. Like how when moving to keep the sights aligned! How to avoid the "fatal funnel" and the active shooting really was great. No I don't work at near north,I am a district copper but this training was enjoyable, they don't talk down to you and really make you feel your part of a "team"! Take it maybe you like me know everything, but this taught me much more!

Great job Officers!!! A wise man once told me if a guy is worth putting one bullet in, he's worth three or four or however many necessary to eliminate the threat.

Never second guess your actions; your life is more valuable than the filth we protect.

Again, great job Officers. Take your time with your recovery if needed.

You are not rambling officer, you are speaking from your heart. I know what you are saying, because many years ago I felt the same thing when I pulled up to a scene of a shooting! It is because of the Good Grace of God that our officers were not hurt.Thank God that our officers were able to defend themselves from people that have no love in their heart, except hate!!!!!!

To 1:40 a.m.: our news affairs people need to do a better job at doling out info. They need to hammer home the word OFFENDER and maybe the reporters will get it. I doubt if this is being done. They could even write a press release and distribute it to all the news organization editors in the city explaining the difference between the two terms. Our own news affairs could be much more helpful in educating the public. That's part of their job.

A big thank you to Dana Kozlov for showing concern on her piece. I must say by her body language and the way she said it ,i do believe that she truly meant it. One thing though I would like to point out to Ms Kozlov, an armed man shooting at police who is then shot by police is not a "victim" ...He is an OFFENDER that was shot only because he placed those fine officers in fear of losing their life or becoming victims of great bodily harm.

Media Media Media wake up , get the verbage right.

Again thanks Dana for your sincere concern for our brothers and sisters in blue, but a man or woman who is neutralized by police because of his or her own actions is not a victim, he or she is an offender....

thanks and be safe out there boys and girls

Any chance the lead poisining came from a 45? Get rid of the 9 and shoot with the 45 until the threat is no longer moving. Heard fire had to be called to do a "wash down".. Great job by all involved.

Once again many thanks to MSF for suppying thier light truck and Command Van for this shooting, alot of evidence would be lost if we didn't have that light truck out there, the Sgt and crew who run the command Van and light truck are really good guys. Sgt. AZ from 11 did an outstanding job as crazy as he is.

So far I have seen kudos to GEU, MSF, and last but not least 011. Good job to all specially to the involved GEU who are 11 district bred officers. Although I am no longer in 011 it is good to hear that you guys still back each other up regardless of where you come from. When sheet hit the fan, business was taken care of, teamwork and professionalism prevailed. We all wear blue and we all bleed red. WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER! That is all we have.

I just wish others on this blog kept the same attitude instead of tearing everyone down with negativity and bs.
