Officer Injured, Offender Shot

  • Police in the Lawndale neighborhood shot and critically wounded a man suspected of abducting his 2-year-old child from a suburb and then running down a police officer who approached him this evening, authorities said.

    An officer shot the suspect at a Church's Fried Chicken restaurant parking lot, 1151 S. Independence Blvd., about 7 p.m. after the suspect ran down an officer with his car, authorities said.


    Fire Department ambulances were dispatched at 7:03 p.m., and took the person who had been shot to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in critical condition, said Meg Ahlheim, a spokeswoman for the Fire Department. A police officer was taken to Northwestern Memorial in fair-to-serious condition, and a third person was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, Ahlheim said.
Preliminary reports are that the officer was working Special/Violence Reduction Initiative. Well done by all responding units which included State and Bridgeview.  A speedy recovery is wished to the injured P.O.

"An officer shot the suspect...about 7 p.m. after the suspect ran down an officer with his car..."

Attack with a firearm, attack with a vehicle on the police is routine now. The only thing out of the current pattern is the 7 P.M. -- a lot of this stuff has shifted to time of sunrise...

Remember shotguns?

Glad the officer is going to be OK and that the offender is expected to expire. That said...

The officer calling it in (4517??) needs to learn radio decorum. Never should you use the words "officer down" and "it's gonna be a Crime Lab job" in the same breath. NEVER.

Even if the unthinkable were to happen, correct radio composure and dialogue is paramount. It can mean a whole world of difference in the well-being of responding personnel. Just like the old-timers once chastised me: "Dope is not an "emergency". Don't get me killed riding on your emergency that's really just some bags of dope, kid". Not the same scenario by any stretch, but the message is the same.

Not only once were these words transmitted, but TWICE. Everyone on Zone 10 was under the impression that the officer was fatally injured, which had every hand on deck responding at 200%. Which put countless other officers at risk.

Bash away and say its easy to armchair quarterback, but I was on scene. I've been to too many similar scenes where officers were hurt (some badly) responding balls-out when unnecessary.

If and when something like this happens again, simply call for the number of ambulances needed and make mention that one of the injured is CPD and that Fireside should be notified of that fact so they can adjust their logistics and arrival accordingly.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY!!! When it's time to request the Crime Lab, please be sure to clearly annunciate the fact (repeatedly if necessary) that it's the offender - and God willing JUST the offender - who needs their services.

And kudos to the ISP and Bridgeview coppers for their professionalism at a most hectic scene.

Offender will live. He somehow is going to survive a gas to the head. It's crazy. I saw the offender on scene and thought he was dead guess not.

And to add to what the poster earlier said about the crime lab. It's a police shooting of course the crime lab is responding they respond to all police involved shootings. I'm with you office my heart dropped when I heard that as we raced over to the scene. Very happy the officer will be ok.

Nice post radio 101... That said, give another class on a thing we have called PHONETIC CODES. Example- 2812, we have a loud music disturbance at 100 main street 1st floor. 2812 10-4. (10 min later) Squad, we are over here and don't hear anything.Do you have a call back? Negative 2812 it was from the anonymous. 2812, 10-4 squad we'll look around. 10 min later... Squad, we looked around and we didn't hear anthing so I guess we can make this a 4p. 10-4 2812, they are holding 3 for shoplifting at the Jewels. My version you may ask? 10-4 (15 min later- 2812, 4p and how bout dinner 150 main st. thanks.

Radio 101 is correct. Learn to work the radio properly and say what needs to be said. More evidence that the Real Police are a dying breed. Effing Hair Gels and folks that never worked a humping district but want to play police on their days off working special employment. They've been known to let their emotions get the best of them and then they say things they shouldn't on the air. Just like at one of my shootings, a FNG that thought he knew everything was stupid enough to tell the dispatcher "tell the ambulance take its time, hopefully this asshole bleeds out in the meantime". Preserved forever on tape and used against us at the civil suit by the dead dudes "estate". The lesson here is to think before you speak, especially when the situation is tense and has potential to get other officers hurt. Especially before you broadcast it over the Zone. And as far as telling the unit on scene of where he or she effed up?? It's called "there's a time and place for everything" son. You never criticize a fellow officer in front of 200 savages with their cell phones recording you. Is it safe to say you have less than 10 years otj? All hidden away in a slow district or do-nothing unit? Again , Radio 101 was right. Take his or her constructive criticism and apply it as a lesson learned. It may save you a ton of grief some day.

From personal experience, I suggest you are full of shit.

As a supervisor, I checked on two of my best guys. I found them mortally wounded in a garage at their last job. With total composure (I'm told), I called a 10-1 with "two officers down", requested two ambulances, the crime lab and everybody else to include the CPD chaplain, homicide, chief of detectives, the superintendent and in effect, put in a Plan 4. Meanwhile, my resuscitation efforts were in vain.

Within minutes, scores of units flooded the area to hunt down the double cop killer. They later found him hiding beneath a nearby front porch with the murder weapon.

Do you have a problem with that, "Radio Decorum"?

The good hospital? Obviously you weren't out there desk boy. Stroger and Sinai save everyone. Closest Tramau center since the offender was critical. The PO had a leg injury, non life threatening. That's why Northwestern.

Radio 101 is right. All you younger guys can talk shit but too many idiots that don't know how to use the radio. Go watch NYPD blues, or THE WIRE. If you are screaming and giving out wrong information no one can help you. I have been in two shootings so I know the point he is trying to make.

Point being try not to yell and If the po did say officer is down, maybe he can rethink what he is saying, maybe, squad get me an ambulance I was hit by the offenders car.

Now go ahead and rip on me now.

Another know-it-all stroke. The "effin hairgel" you are referring to actually has no hair. Maybe its from his 30 years in the USMC, or his 25 on the job. Whatever the case give it a rest. You sound like a goof. Now go back in your Mom's basement with your personal radio and your 5-11s.

That tragic day in 1990 we actually had two "officers down". You correctly assesed the situation snd made the proper call.

A PO who had his foot run over by a car is not an officer down. That was panic on his partners part. I do not want to die going lights
and sirens to a false alarm.

If you were even there then you need to go back and listen to the COS tapes. There was no yelling on the radio. It was nt a 45XX unit that said officer down.......... the 1st time . it was nt the sgt either and it was never called in as a 10-1 the dispatcher told everyone to just go,,,,,,, listen up........ pay attention and you might just be smarter than the car your driving too fast to a scene. and just what did you do when you got there??? Nothing but walk through a crime scene ?????? now lighten up alice
