Suburban Officer Shot
- The Park Forest Police Department posted a powerful note to the people they serve Sunday following the shooting of one of their officers.
Officer Tim Jones was critically injured early Saturday, and the man accused of shooting him is dead, after an exchange of gunfire in the south suburb.
Park Forest police said Sunday Jones remained in critical but stable condition.
"A Park Forest Police Officer is with him and his family 24 hours a day. That's the thing about this job: When tragedy strikes, it's not just a job, it's family," a Facebook post said.
Prayers for the wounded officer.
