CHICAGO (WLS) — Chicago Alderman Matt O’Shea returned to the scene outside the 22nd Police District, where a Sunday night car chase ended with a 46-year-old woman shot dead and a 42-year-old man, who was driving one of the vehicles, wounded.
“Monterey Avenue here had shell casings, 15-to-20 right here, where the offenders fired at the victims who were parked 20 feet from the door of the police station,” said O’Shea, who represents the city’s 19th Ward.
The shooting started east of the station. Police said the victims were chased by another vehicle and shot at for several minutes. They tried to seek safety at the Morgan Park station, but the shooters didn’t care.
“The victims pulled in here seeking shelter,” O’Shea said while standing outside the driveway station. “They were sitting ducks in that car.”
Several shots fired at the car struck the police station, including a window of an office where officers were working.
“Unbelievable. Just another example of how the bad guys have no fear being held accountable,” O’Shea said. “The criminals are winning. They fear nothing. We’ve created this criminal justice system, that they’ll never be held accountable. Everything’s a slap on the wrist.”
CPD Supt. David Brown vowed to find and hold those responsible accountable.
“Criminals, particularly violent criminals, feel empowered… They have no respect for life or law enforcement and our officers’ lives,” Brown said. “It is shocking that a police district is not a safe space. But, our police officers have been attacked these last two-and-a-half years at levels not seen in the city’s history.”
O’Shea called the shooters “urban terrorists.”
“Multiple locations, the offenders stalked, chased the victims, riddled the car with gunfire,” O’Shea said. “This wasn’t random. This was targeted.”
Mayor Lori Lightfoot introduced her picks for the interim civilian police oversight commission, hoping they can play a role in improving public safety.
“A fundamental part of improving safety is having the people in the community believe that the police are legitimate forces for good, and that’s a huge issue all over our city,” Lightfoot said. “We’ve got to keep doing the work of holding violent dangerous people accountable no matter where they are, no matter what part of the city they’re in.”
PHOENIX – A Sunday night shooting broke out in Phoenix near the I-17 and the police department says two officers were injured, two other people at the scene were killed, three others were injured and the suspect is dead.
The shooting happened near I-17 and Deer Valley Road around 8:45 p.m. when a two-officer unit responded to the area and were met with gunfire.
They “engaged” with the suspect, who then retreated. The unidentified suspect was then found dead, and it’s not known how he died.
The department says the officers are expected to be OK.
“Once again, two Phoenix Police officers have been shot,” said Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams in a press conference at the hospital just hours after the shooting on Aug. 28. “Thankfully, those two officers are recovering and are talking. So they’re in good spirits.”
Two others who were at the scene, who are not law enforcement, died as a result of the incident, Williams said. They haven’t been identified.
Three others who were also injured in the shooting were taken to the hospital.
“This is a massive crime scene,” Williams continued. “There’s still a lot of work to do out at that crime scene.”
Williams remarked on violence against police, asking when will the violence end, and that this is another example of innocent bystanders getting killed and hurt by gun violence.
