Chicago police officer killed while processing crime scene

A Chicago police officer processing a burglary scene and another person were fatally shot Friday afternoon, police said.

The officer, an evidence technician, died at 2:30 p.m., one hour after the shootings, said Police Superintendent Jody Weis. Another man also died, Weis said, adding there was no information on a motive.

"The thought that someone can shoot and kill a police officer is unacceptable," Weis said. "We shall squeeze that neighborhood and we will find who did this."

The gunman is described as a black male wearing a gray thermal shirt, a blue vest and a gray skull cap, according to CNN affiliate WLS.

    How did the description of the attacker make it past the PC censorship? Its a rare day they admit the attackers race unless he was white and the victim not.

    When are they going to learn? They mess around in the hood, they are going to die. Those people are nothing more than drugged up animals. Build a fence around them and let them live in a giant cage with their own kind.

    ** When one gets interviewed after a burglary, one may send ___ to tidy up – which may include the witness **

    "He wore a gray sweatshirt", he said.
