Excellent Effort Officers
- Chicago police chased down a gunman after they saw him fatally shoot another man on a South Side street, authorities said.
Gresham District officers were on patrol when they heard gunshots in the 700 block of East 87th Place just before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday and went to investigate, police said.
As the officers arrived, they saw a man fire three shots into the head of a man on the ground, authorities said.
The officers chased down the 30-year-old suspect and took him into custody, according to authorities. The suspect, who lives across the street from the victim, has a street gang affiliation but police didn't offer a motive.
The victim seems like a decent guy, too. Don't expect any marches for him though.
