Officer Kills Assailant
- A man who allegedly pointed a gun at Chicago police was fatally shot
this afternoon in the Park Manor neighborhood, officials said.
The shooting happened at about 3:45 p.m. near the 6700 block of South Indiana Avenue, according to Patrick Camden, a spokesman for the Chicago police union.
Police officers were driving south on Indiana near an alley when they spotted a man coming out of the alley with a gun in his hand, said Camden.
After police pulled over they ordered the man to drop the gun but the man began running down the alley and about midway the man turned and pointed the weapon at the police, Camden said.
The officers fired at the man, fatally striking him, Camden said.
Well done Officers.
