Police officer wounded, robbery suspect killed after shooting in Lombard

LOMBARD, Ill. (CBS) — A Lombard police officer was wounded late Thursday afternoon in an exchange of gunfire with a robbery suspect.

Police confirmed one of the robbery suspects died. The officer injured is undergoing surgery. 

The sight of police and the mobile command center caught many in Lombard by surprise.

“It’s Lombard,” said Amery Vandermeir. “You don’t expect this to happen here.”

Yet Thursday afternoon, armed robbers stormed into a smoke shop in a strip mall at Roosevelt Road and Lincoln Street. People nearby had to take cover as bullets flew.

Vandermeir works next door.

“There was just a lot of whole bunch of ruckus and noise over there, and all the cops came flying down the street,” Vandermeir said.

When officers responded to the armed robbery, Lombard police said they encountered the gunmen a short distance to the north in a residential area at Lincoln and Ann streets. But instead of giving themselves up, police said the crooks opened fire when a plainclothes detective tried stopping them.

There was an exchange of gunfire, and a detective was shot in an injured in the right leg. The time was 4:11 p.m.

The wounded officer was taken by another officer in a squad car to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. The officer remains in the hospital and is undergoing surgery for his injuries.
