Trooper Wounded

  • A carjacking suspect was killed and an Illinois State Police trooper was wounded during a shootout Saturday evening on I-55 near downstate Staunton, police said. Around 3:45 p.m. Saturday, the Glen Carbon Police Department informed state police about an armed carjacking in which the suspect fired shots in the area of the Glen Carbon Sam’s Club, according to ISP.

    A responding state trooper found the suspect’s car going northbound on I-55 and tried to pull it over. Instead, the pursuit took them into Staunton, then back toward the highway, police said. Staunton police joined troopers in following the suspect, who drove off the roadway and got stuck in the median near the intersection of Staunton Road and Interstate 55, according to ISP.

    The suspect got out of his car and started to run, according to state police. The state trooper ran after him. He took out a handgun and shot at the trooper, who was hit, police said. The trooper fired back, hitting and killing the suspect, police said. The suspect was identified as male but had no identification on him and has not been identified, police said. Police said a handgun was recovered at the scene.
Well done Trooper. Wishing a speedy recovery to you.

If they ID him the “grieving “ family will immediately show up with a lawyer. Bury him in the median strip as a warning to the next a-hole.

Justifiable killing by The Police
and no COPA or media fueled outrage
from the community?

Rest easy Trooper.
Take your time fully recovering
and thank you for a job well done.

Wait a second. COPA/IPRA says that an armed suspect running away is physically unable to shoot over his shoulder while running. Trooper is lucky he don’t work here. PS All you Lightfoot supporters can go pound sand

Well done.
However, More questions than answers - Jugghaid SpecialEd is sending JB a complimentary COPA representative team to find out the truth of why the Trooper agitated that boy for no reason.

Bury?

Coyotes and buzzards need feeding so a stand of
cottonwoods about a half mile from the interstate
will be as good a place as any to drop some "shit."
