Bailey Killer Charged
- A 24-year-old man was charged today with gunning down an off-dutyChicago police officer who was about to retire after 20 years on the force, authorities said.
Officer Michael Bailey was cleaning his new Buick – a retirement gift to himself – outside his South Side home in July 2010 when he was killed in an exchange of gunfire with a would-be robber, police said. He was still in uniform after just working an overnight shift.
The suspect, Antwon Carter, was charged late today with first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery, according to Sally Daly, spokeswoman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.
The charges come about three weeks after Chicago police questioned Carter about the veteran officer’s murder -- a development first reported by the Tribune.
Now let's see a conviction on this scumbag.
