Officer's Home Invaded

  • A home invasion in the Longwood Manor neighborhood turned deadly early Thursday, when a 43-year-old man tried to fight off the intruders, and was shot and killed. In an ironic twist, it happened in the home of a Chicago police officer, although that officer was not the victim.

    Police said the suspects entered a home near 97th and Harvard through a side window around 3:45 a.m.

    When a 43-year-old man inside the home tried to fight off the suspects, one of them shot him in the chest and the back. The victim was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

    [...]

    Fellow officers from the Chicago Police Department’s 5th District are investigating 11 shootings in less than three weeks, five of them homicides. It’s a section of the South Side familiar with crime.
No word if her home was targeted for her being the police.

UPDATE: Seems the victim had quite the background.

STOP THE PRESSES! If this was a criminal shot in the back there would be marches, protests, “no justice no peace”. Oh wait, guess that only applies when it’s a felon who is fleeing while firing at the police. Backwards world here in Chicago, recently traveled and realized just how much the police are demonized here compared to many other parts of the country. No wonder why the suicide rate is so high on this job.

He was convicted for murder and sentenced to 35 years and then released after approximately 18 years. Another example of a convicted murderer getting out early.

He was arrested a couple years ago for fighting the police.

Her husband was a convicted murderer, still in the pen while she was hired. How the flapjacks did the background investigation not reveal this?? Sorry but I don't think she was targeted for being the police.

OT: No mention of race of offender on NBC Nightly News. Funny how they only say that when the cops shoot the black guy first.

Please refrain from using the word "victim" when referring to a convicted murderer. The "victim" died years ago. This guy was just stealing air from society.

What makes you think it wasn't discovered during background check...perhaps the Chief BW approved the lass for hire-- maybe the IG should start looking at recent backgrounds approved for hire...my sense is plenty gets overlooked these days

The murdered victim can't come back to life, why should the murderer be released & free to roam? Is the value of the criminal greater than that of the victim?

It's not even an accurate start let alone good. The POTUS is the Guard's commander in chief WHEN they are activated for FEDERAL service. What you are referring to is a domestic issue and requires the governor's orders. It's the Illinois National Guard. He's the govenor of IL and the IL National Guard boss. It is the military but it's primary mission is Illinois and its primary orders are from Illinois and for Illinois. Furthermore, they know nothing about domestic policing. That's not what they do.
