Another One Gone

We lost another police officer this morning, gunned down while chasing fleeing men.
The officer radioed in Tuesday morning to tell dispatchers he was chasing three men on foot, but communication was lost shortly after, according to Covelli.  "His backup arrived shortly thereafter and found him injured with a gunshot wound," Covelli said. "The officer has succumbed to his injuries and passed away."
This one, Lt  Joseph Gliniewicz of the Fox Lake IL police department was a 30-year veteran of the department.  As always, my thoughts and prayers to the survivors.

A manhunt is going on right now for three suspects, two white males and one black male that the officer was chasing when he was shot.  The area of the manhunt is described as "wooded and rural".

This subject is getting damned monotonous.
