Shooting Up North
Copper confronts catalytic converter thieves, who try to hit him with their car:
- An off-duty officer fired his weapon at someone driving toward him Thursday morning after the officer found someone vandalizing his car, police said.
The officer saw the man vandalizing a parked car in the 5500 block of North Neenah Avenue in the Union Ridge neighborhood about 5:55 a.m., police said.
When the officer confronted the man, he fled to a waiting car driven by someone who accelerated toward the officer while trying to flee.
This is supposed to be a pattern up north according to e-mailers. Wishing a speedy recovery to the officer.
