Two Chicago PD Officers Struck & Killed by Train

They were chasing a suspect. On foot. The hell...

Quote:
Two Chicago police officers chasing a man with a gun were killed in a “devastating tragedy” when they were struck by a train Monday evening on the Far South Side, police said — bringing the total number of officers killed in the line of duty in 2018 to four.

The incident Monday unfolded shortly after 6 p.m., police Supt. Eddie Johnson said at a news conference.

The officers responded to a ShotSpotter notification of shots fired at 101st Street and Dauphin Avenue, Johnson said. When the officers arrived they confronted the suspect, who ran up to the train tracks at 103rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, police said.

At 6:20 p.m., while they were chasing the suspect on foot, they were struck by eastbound train No. 119, which had left Millennium Station at 5:58 p.m., according to Metra spokeswoman Sylvia Cooper.

The officers were dead at the scene

#BlueLivesMatter

Hate to hear when a brother or sister in blue dies protecting the assholes who would rather spit on them. It's a thankless job.

I agree. Being dark might've been a factor, but unless they were in tune to their radio chatter, it's hard to see how they got in this mess.

Turns out that there were 2 trains. They thought the noise and vibrations were coming from the train that had passed. Didn't know there was another one coming....

Rookie cops making a rookie mistake. Apparently, there's a body camera video recovered from one of the corpses.
