Shots Fired at Police
- A 16-year-old boy was charged with trying to kill a cop after the teen allegedly fired at a police officer in the Uptown neighborhood Sunday afternoon, officials said Monday.
The boy, who is from Chicago but whose name was not available, was charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of possessing a gun with a defaced serial number, said [...] a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The charges stem from an incident that happened about 3 p.m. Sunday on the 4600 block of North Kenmore Avenue, police said.
According to police, the teen was running away from police when the boy turned and fired his weapon at the officer.
Amazing how the assailant got a hold of a gun, what with all the laws and rules against it. Good thing no one was injured.
