A gun-toting man running from police died after he suffered multiple cuts running through a glass door, authorities said this morning.

Officers saw the man firing a gun in the air just before 8:30 p.m. in a vacant lot in the the 6200 block of South Vernon Avenue in the West Woodlawn neighborhood, police said. The Cook County medical examiner's office identified him this morning as Jonrynn Avery, 24, of the same block.

Never bring a gun to a glass door fight.

Damn, that’s tragic...

That glass door must’ve been expensive.

“identified him this morning as Jonrynn Avery”

From another news source:
"Avery was being chased by police officers when he ran through the glass door at his home address, according to a source."
So, the dumbass tried running through his own glass door?

My prediction: The perp’s family will sue the owner of the glass door, the person who installed the glass door and the manufacturer of the glass door, for failing to install and maintain a conspicuous warning label listing the dangers associated with running through glass doors.

The family will ultimately settle out-of-court for a high-six/low-seven figure.

John Edwards is probably already on a plane to Chicago as I am typing this...

I guess someone neglected to tell him that it doesn't work like in the movies. Y'see, in the movies they use special-effect glass that doesn't cut you up into a million pieces.

Anyone want to place bets on whether the family will find a slip-n-fall lawyer to sue the door manufacturer?

Maybe he was just some “community organizer” trainee funded by nobama’s stimulus plan. He was probably just completing his “firing at the moon with an illegal gun” merit badge.

If true, this won't be added to the Ad Council spots for certain celebrations that are held throughout the month of February.

CAUTION: Running through glass could cause bodily harm.

This will now be mandatory and liberals will hold a national day in my Avery's honor.

Yes, and they’ll call the legislation “Jonrynn’s Law”

And a few years from now the ‘Lifetime Movie Network’ will make a nanny-statist, tear-jerker movie about it called: “The First Cut is The Deepest - The Jonrynn Avery Story”.

That's good! We need to develop a cast. I propose a lib loon like Julia Stiles to play the role of an attorney for the misguided yoot.

"A gun-toting man running from police died after he suffered multiple cuts running through a glass door, authorities said this morning."

"Jonrynn" Avery -- a stupid person with a stupid name who probably believed most everything he saw on television.

As a landlord, I hope the guy who owns the house this guy or his mom was probably renting is paid up on his liability insurance.

I saw a girl run through a glass door (that she thought was open) at a pool party back in the early 70s. She must have had a hundred cuts, fortunately no major bleeding.
