Off Duty Shooting
- An off-duty Chicago Police detective shot at two males who allegedly tried to steal from a Jewel store Wednesday night in the Norwood Park neighborhood.
The detective was shopping at the Jewel at 7342 W. Foster Ave. about 7:10 p.m. when store employees told her there was a theft in progress and pointed out the robbers, police said.
The detective approached them in the parking lot. They had gotten into a vehicle they had loaded with the stolen merchandise, police said. When the driver accelerated the vehicle at the officer, she shot at them in “fear of her life,” police said. No one was injured.
The suspects were arrested, police said.
We scanned one of papers on-line and the usual suspects were up in arms about the gunning down of poor misunderstood people (or folks) who try to run down people with cars. No one got hit, but they were appalled that people might get shot committing crimes. The comments have since disappeared, but when the media leaves their comments unmonitored for any length of time, you can see why so many figure Chicago is lost.
