Cops: Off-duty sergeant fatally shoots teen during robbery (Chicago, video of incident)
The Chicago Tribune ^ | 2/11/2014 | Deanese Williams-Harris and Jeremy Gorner

Posted on 02/11/2014 11:00:53 AM PST by Beave Meister

A gun pointed at his gut, the off-duty sheriff's sergeant digs through his pockets with his left hand, fumbling for money, as the three robbers surround him at the Far South Side gas station.

The sergeant is surer with his right hand, quickly drawing his own gun and firing point-blank. The gunman, 16, drops at his feet as the two others scatter, according to surveillance video that captured the robbery Monday night at a Citgo station at 103rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, across the street from Gately Stadium.

The sergeant swings around at the fleeing robbers, then points the gun down as the gunman struggles to get up. The video shows the sergeant kicking away the robber's gun and then opening the passenger door of his own car, apparently to get his phone.

The 16-year-old was shot in the head and died, according to police. The sergeant was not injured, and police said they were still looking for the two other robbers this morning.

Good.

Saved the taxpaying law-abiding citizens a ton of money.

Jesse Jackson will claim the kid with the gun was acting in self defense because the cop made him commit the robbery.

And one of the others was digging through his car.

Guess they went for the gangsta lifestyle and they lost.

Glad he was not injured after they pointed a weapon at him.

Does Illinois have a felony murder statute so the other two can be convicted of murder for their accomplice dying during their crime?

I'll bet within a month this punk will be on every gun control groups' list of children killed by guns.

Compared to last year, it's been a slow six weeks in Chicago thus far.

The great thing is all law abiding citizens in Chicago can easily get a permit and carry concealed so they too may defend themselves.....

Odd - I was just thinking about that this morning on how I have read that some/many people can draw their gun and shoot before the person that has a gun pointed at you can react and pull the trigger. The element of surprise AND the will to shoot, and knowing AHEAD of time what you will do. (Such as fumbling around for your wallet.)

Glad it worked out for this guy.

It was a “teen” what got shot, huh? Like “Archie” or “Reggie” in the comic books, right?

I wonder if the “teen” had a “tan”.

It's so when they get shot dead and their sphincter muscle relaxes, they don't make a mess in their pants.

Pretty much. I’tll be “because racism”, ultimately. Rahm will probably pay the family a settlement, and then blame it all on the NRA. “This young innocent wouldn’t have been seduced by guns in the first place if...”

Not to worry. When they arrive where they are going they will find out fast. The one holding up his pants better get used to holding someone else's belt loop.
