CPD Civilian Shooting
- A civilian Chicago Police Department employee shot a man who tried to rob him at gunpoint a few blocks from Douglas Park on the city's West Side, police said.
Police said the 57-year-old man was trying to get on his motorcycle around 6 a.m. Monday when two male suspects, a 31-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, walked up to him and announced a robbery near West 13th Street and South Sawyer Avenue.
The older suspect pointed a gun at the CPD employee while the younger suspect went through his pockets, police said. When the teen tried to take his licensed concealed weapon, the victim shot man in the neck.
Nice shot there. But we don't understand this part:
- Both suspects are in custody. Charges are pending. Area Central detectives are handling the investigation and the Independent Police Review Authority responded to the scene, police said.
IPRA? Why? They investigate and review police actions, not civilians. Hopefully, he told them to go fuck themselves. Again though, nice shot. More concealed carry, less criminals.
