On his facebook profile, Paris Sadler posed for photos throwing the hand sign of a gang with a chilling name: The Every Body Killers.
According to charges filed by the Cook County State’s Attorney, it’s a name he tried to live up to. Sadler — a 21-year-old McDonald’s employee — is accused of the attempted murder of Chicago Police officer Del Pearson. He allegedly shot Pearson, 47, in the chest with a 9mm handgun during a foot chase down an alley in the 8400 block of South Kingston Monday night.
Charged late Wednesday, Sadler, who lives with his mom just yards from the shooting scene, was arrested following a manhunt early Tuesday morning. Pearson had approached him and a group of three other young men suspected of a possible curfew violation around 10:45 p.m. Monday when Sadler ran off then turned and fired at the officer during a gun battle, police say.
