Guilty Verdict in 2011 Shooting

  • A man who prosecutors said is a member of the Black Souls street gang was found guilty Friday of attempted murder in the 2011 shooting of two police officers in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

    After a four-day trial, Alvis Holley, 28, was convicted of two counts of attempted murder of a police officer, according to court records and a news release from the Cook County state's attorney's office.

    Prosecutors said that in the evening hours of July 18, 2011, the officers saw a narcotics deal in an alley on the 4000 block of West Wilcox Street. When they approached the alley, Holley, who was involved in the transaction, walked up to the passenger side of the police car, prosecutors said.

    Holley could not tell the officers what he was doing or where he lived, so he was told to put his hands on the hood of the police car. Instead, he began to fight with the officers, prosecutors said.

    During the fight, Holley pulled out a .22-caliber pistol from his waist and shot one of the officers in the left bicep and grazed his left temple. When the officer fell to the ground, Holley shot the other one in the head, prosecutors said.
Both officers still carry the bullets in their bodies, one may never return to the streets. Sentencing is late next month and hopefully, he gets the maximum 90 years.

He was just trying to make a living the only way he knew how. He was so poor that all he could afford was a lousy .22 pistol. Lets hope the judge shows some mercy.

Hopefully, judge sentencing in this case remembers "life + 133" for Bryant Brewer, murderer of Ofc. Soderberg, and lays on that 90 + "ineligible."

The FOP will host a meeting where we will discuss a possible solution for retiree healthcare. The City has made its intent to cut off coverage for retirees on 1/1/2017 very clear.

Jack Byrnes from Source 1 Benefits will have detailed rate information from Aetna and a comparison to the City plan rates.

All labor groups are invited.

I will send a separate message with a calendar attachment.

When: 9/29/15 at 2 pm
Where: FOP Lodge 7, 1412 W Washington St.

...and the people who will bang guns off sideways all over the landscape, killing little kids in their beds, come down off the porches with this hallucinatory Marquis Of Queensbury stuff, "Not fair. Why the po-lice shoot first just because someone point a gun at them?"

This is why. Two lives wrecked with a .22.

You got a wild animal here who is lucky to be alive at all, after what he did -- ofc. were gravely injured and could not further protect themselves. Stick 'im good, Judge. This is why the citizens put you there.

Help to protect society. Bryant Brewer just got life + 115; please keep this in mind in your deliberations regarding sentencing. We can't let people just go around shooting everything they see. They seem to be increasingly fearless of armed, uniformed policemen on duty; what chance does the ordinary citizen have, trying to get in their door safely with their groceries?

Thank you, and may the good Lord assist you and help guide you in your difficult work.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to ASA's Tom Darman and Brian Holmes for their dedicated work on this case! They, along with the Detectives who worked the case did a great job. The victim P/Os are to be commended for their work that night and their composure in court.
