Cop Killer Trial
As Chicago police Officer Nathaniel Taylor Jr. approached a drug suspect sitting in a car to serve him with a search warrant, his partner heard the pop of two gunshots and saw the interior of the vehicle light up with the muzzle flashes.
“It was like a Polaroid camera,” testified Officer Lemornet Miller about the night his partner was killed when his team of narcotics officers allegedly tried to serve suspect Lamar Cooper with a search warrant.
Taylor fell to the ground with fatal wounds to his head and chest. Stunned, Officer Lemornet Miller said he drew his gun and began shooting back, unloading 10 rounds at suspect Lamar Cooper before calling for help on his radio and running over to check on his partner.
If you're at 26th Street, stop by. Word so far is the judge is allowing uncovered uniforms in the courtroom.
