Shooting

Shots fired at and by the police at 47th and Prairie.

Initial reports have offender dead, two officers taken to the hospital.

Updates as we're able.

UPDATE:
  • A Chicago police officer fatally shot a person Wednesday evening in the South Side Bronzeville neighborhood, police said.

    Officers on a narcotics mission chased a suspect who ran away from them about 8:10 p.m. in the 300 block of East 47th Street, according to CPD [...].

    During an “armed confrontation,” an officer shot the person, [...]. Paramedics initially took the critically wounded person to a hospital, where he later died. It wasn’t clear how many times or where on his body he was shot, and the Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t released details about the death. His age also wasn’t known.

    A sergeant involved in the incident wasn’t shot but suffered a possible broken ankle while trying to hop a fence.

    A gun was recovered at the scene...
Best wishes to all involve and hoping for a speedy recovery for the injured sergeant.

Tribune coverage here. The usual drama was playing out all night with family and "community" ignorance on full display.

The sick and lying media(ABC7) Liz Nagy put some random citizen on tv who stated, “he didn’t have no dope or gun” As though this person had any credibility or knew anything about the event. That’s why the media is only worth watching for the weather and even that is sensationalized.

Thankfully this hospital opened to help:
Meanwhile, several others in the group yelled at police and hospital staff, accusing them of racism and wrongdoing. Almost silently, the wall of officers continued to guard the entrance the University of Chicago’s new Level I trauma center, which opened on May 2, bringing a flood of gunshot victims to the hospital that would previously have been transported to one of the city's other trauma centers.

*a flood of gunshot victims? Err some are not victims but offenders! Over/under on when they will close due to no payment?
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-police-shooting-20180606-story.html

Then you read the rest of the article from the failing liberal “dishonest media” portraying the offender as “turning life around,criminal history in the past,loves his kids!” Gee media no mention of his JOB!

Records show Granton has an arrest history, but his family said that was all in the past.

“We all grew up in the system,” Varnado said. "We didn’t have our parents. You are a product of your environment. When he was lashing out, he didn't know who he was, but he turned it around when he had those girls."

All you can hear from the crowd was, “if he dead y’all gonna be gone one by one, on my this and that grave blah blah blah”.

An innocent woman was caught in gang crossfire 2 blocks from this intersection back in April. She died after about a month in the hospital. This is what that neighborhood has agreed they'd tolerate. When are they going to get fed-up enough of the crime and killings to allow the CPD to do their job??? Do they want to raise their children to normalize this cesspool??? Really???

It seems the pizza and child lover was winged a few nights before and refused to snitch. No doubt he was chromed up looking for the other guy, and the 6 kids in his line of sight. That initial report by the Trib made even me want to vomit.

"""""Granton’s sister, Joanna Varnado, is among those who don’t believe he had a gun. “I just want to know what the real story is,” she said of her brother, who has two young daughters. “If it was misconduct, I want justice. My brother was 24 years old. He loved his girls. That’s all he lived for, was his kids."

Granton has two convictions on his record for robbery and theft, and several arrests for trespassing and drug possession. But his family said Granton was not a violent man. “Since when does running validate somebody getting shot?” Varnado said. “I don’t understand that. You’re not being offensive, you’re being defensive.”""""""
