Chicago Police fatally shoot a lawless feral Negro who shot 2 others in Homan Square
Harrison District officers heard gunfire while on patrol about 12:25 a.m. and saw someone standing over another person and firing a gun near the intersection of Harrison and Central Park Avenue, CPD First Deputy Supt. Kevin Navarro told reporters at the scene.
The officers got out of their squad car, “engaged the offender” and fatally shot him, according to Navarro, who said the person had shot two other people, one of whom died. The other was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed one adult was pronounced dead at the scene, but did not immediately have information on the other death.
A weapon was recovered at the scene, police said.
The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating the use of force. A spokeswoman for the agency could not immediately be reached for comment.
The officers, who were not hurt, will be placed on desk duty for 30 days, per CPD policy.
It was the city’s second fatal police-involved shooting in just over 24 hours, and the third in a week.
