Shooting Monday Morning
No cops hurt, no known hits on the bad guy who's still at large:
- Chicago police were involved in a shooting this morning on the West Side, but no one was hurt, police said.
The incident happened at about 4:15 a.m. near the intersection of Polk Street and Cicero Avenue in the Lawndale neighborhood, police said.
Prior to the shooting there had been an armed robbery about a block south of the intersection in which money was taken from a woman on the street at gunpoint....
An officer spotted a car that matched the description of the vehicle involved in the robbery and did a traffic stop. As the officer approached the car, the driver drew a handgun and pointed it at the officer.
Once again, it seems like we see these stories in the media two and three times a week lately. Does anyone have comparisons to last years stats of shootings and aggravated assaults on the police?
