Ofc Schultz Returns Home
- Police vehicles from more than a dozen law enforcement agencies clogged the streets outside of the Cook County Medical Examiner's office Wednesday, flashing red and blue lights in tribute to the fallen Indiana officer whose remains they would escort for burial more than 50 miles away.
Nickolaus Schultz, 24, served with the Merrillville police department for a little more than a year before he was shot Friday night by a man who later committed suicide. Schultz, an organ donor, was pronounced dead nearly two days later at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
Outside of the medical examiner’s office on the near West Side, somber looking police officers said they made it their mission to support Schultz’s family who had made the trek from their Lowell, Ind. home.
Godspeed and God bless Officer.
