  • Three police officers shot on West Side

    July 15, 2007 (CHICAGO) - Three officers of the Chicago Police Department were shot Sunday night while responding to a call on the city's West Side.

    Chicago Police spokesman John Mirabelli says the shooting occurred shortly before 9 p.m.
    A woman, believed to be in her 50s, was killed in the incident.

    Chicago police were responding to a call in the 5000 block of West Adams. Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Monique Bond said the woman was firing a shotgun out of her second-floor apartment window while police were on the ground below.

    "In their attemp to make entry [to the apartment building], the female offender lunged out of the building armed and shooting, striking three police officers," said Bond.

    Police shot back at the woman.

    Two officers were shot in the arm, and one was grazed in the head. The injured officers were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. All are in stable condition, and their injuries are not lifethreatening.

    Dozens of police officers remained on the scene Sunday night. Authorities do not have a motive.

            The first post is not correct. All three officers were from SOS. They had responded to an AGBAT. Once on scene they entered the residence and announced their office at which time they heard a shotgun rack. They made entry and the offender fired striking them. They returned fire fatally striking the offender. The offender was not shooting out of the window.
