Suicide by Police
Officer is okay - or as okay as you can be after getting stabbed twice through the vest:
- A 25-year-old man who had been threatening suicide was shot and killed by police near his home after he attacked an officer with a knife Thursday night in the West Woodlawn neighborhood, police said.
The incident took place about 6:40 p.m. in the 400 block of East Marquette Road, according to a statement from Police News Affairs.
Grand Crossing District officers responded to a call of a man threatening suicide in that area and found Terrence Gilbert sitting on a porch, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Once police officers pulled up and exited their vehicle, Gilbert charged at a police officer with a knife, stabbing him twice in his vest, according to the audio of Chicago police Deputy Chief Berscott Ruiz’s statement at the scene.
There'll be someone wanting a protest over this making statements on social media shortly. In the meantime, good job Officers.
