DEVELOPING STORY: One Chicago police officer is dead and another is fighting for his life after being shot during a traffic stop on Saturday night.
Both officers were rushed to the University of Chicago Medical Center. A number of Chicago police officers gathered outside the hospital as they waited for information late Saturday.
The Fraternal Order of Police, Chicago Lodge #7, tweeted “Lord, please look over these two Officers, keep them and every Officer out in the 8th District safe tonight. This career of service we all chose is one of sacrifice, but please Lord, not tonight. Not tonight.”
The fallen officer has not yet been identified at the request of her family. She had served on the police force for three-and-a-half year. Her partner, had more than six years on the job.
I’m asking Chicago to wrap their arms around our police officers today,” the police superintendent said during a Sunday morning press brief.
Three thugs have been arrested for the horrific crime.
