Chicago Man Killed by Police in Drive-By Shooting
There are still questions about the death of a Chicago police officer in a drive-by shooting. Although a police spokesperson declined to comment on the circumstances of the shooting, he confirmed that four people were hurt. The fourth person was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he remains in critical to serious condition. The police officer who killed the man was not wearing a seatbelt. In the video, the driver of the silver sedan can be seen swerving to avoid a car in the road. Instead of slowing down, the driver of the silver sedan swerved to avoid a car in the road. He plowed into the group and sent the victims flying thirty feet high.
The gunman is described as a Black male, approximately 18 to 20 years old, with a slender build, long hair, and blue eyes. He was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, and brown work boots. Londre Sylvester was talking to his mother over the phone when the gunman opened fire. The suspects fled the scene in a car. The DNA of the suspects and extensive phone recordings taken from Cook County Jail enabled police to identify them.
Police believe the shooting took place in the Loop on Saturday night. Two men were standing in a lot at the time. Two men were killed and several shots were fired by the shooter, who also shot at a black sedan. The first victim was 29 years old and was shot multiple times. The second victim, 23, was also shot in the chest and later died. He died at a hospital, while the third victim, 29, suffered minor gunshot wounds.
The gunman who fired the shots at the victims was armed with a knife. The suspect, who is still unknown, was wearing a black mask. The victims were in the 3300 block of West Harrison. A male offender shot the victims multiple times. One man was fatally shot in the face, and a second man was shot seven times in the body. Both victims were rushed to an area hospital in critical condition.
Immediately after the shooting, the police officer tried to make an arrest. Robert E. Crimo III fled. The officers had spotted him driving a silver Honda Fit, which was parked in a parking lot. The officers’ aggressive responses to residents foreshadow the chaos that was to come. The officers’ subsequent aggressive responses to the community also presage the disorder to come. And the police officer’s actions in that incident are akin to murder.
Fan was shot to death in a Hyde Park garage. The suspect then “randomly” entered an apartment building a block away. He then shot a security guard and a 77-year-old woman delivering mail. The security guard was declared dead at the hospital while the woman was still in critical condition. Nightengale was pursued by police officers, but he was killed in a parking garage.
