Seems to be a lot more of these lately - they run in fits and starts:
- A man was shot and wounded by police officers Saturday night in Englewood, authorities said. The man was shot about 8:16 p.m. in the 5800 block of South Morgan, police Deputy Chief Dana Alexander said.
"Englewood District tactical officers were on patrol when they responded to a call of ‘man with a gun’ in the 5800 block of S. Morgan," according to a written statement from the police department.
"Officers observed a man matching a radio description flee on foot to the back of a residence," the statement said. "Officers gave chase and confronted the subject in a rear of the residence. Officer observed the offender holding a weapon and ordered him to drop it. The offender did not comply, at which point officers discharged their weapons," the statement said.
A lot of bosses giving statements to the media ahead of Pat Camden all the sudden. Is this some new policy? Beat the FOP to the punch?
