Chicago Police Officer In Serious Condition After She Was Shot During Traffic Stop

A Chicago police officer is in serious but stable condition according to Chicago Police Supt. David Brown. A police source notified WGN News that the officer was shot in the city’s West Englewood neighborhood. 

Police responded to a call in the area of W. 64th and S. Paulina streets for reports of an officer being shot around 5:40 p.m.

Authorities say one officer was shot when two cops in a marked squad car attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the 6100 block of S. Paulina St.

The car the officers were trying to pull over first sped up, and then slowed down to come in parallel with the cop car, Brown said. At that point, someone in the car started firing a gun at the officers.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted a statement about the shooting saying that “I am aware of the Chicago Police officer who was shot in the 7th District and have been in constant communication with Superintendent Brown since this outrageous attack on our officers occurred. My family and I will be praying for the injured officer and the entire Department as they grapple with yet another heinous and deliberate assault on our officers’ lives.

I have asked the Superintendent to use every resource possible to find the person responsible for this attempted murder of a police officer and bring them to justice.”
