Failed Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot woke up today to a tragedy that just reinforces her lack of leadership and her debacle of a first term. Everyone from the members of the Chicago Police Department to members of the city council went on record saying she is in over her head and lost control of the city.
She has demonstrated she does not have a clue what the important issues are facing the city and what solutions she does offer have only made it worse.
Early this morning a Chicago police officer and two federal agents were shot in the city’s outside of a police station in the Morgan Park neighborhood. The injuries are not life-threatening and the hope is this will serve as a wake-up call to Lightfoot and her team.
According to The Chicago Sun-Times, A Chicago police officer and two federal agents were shot Wednesday morning outside a police station in Morgan Park on the Far South Side, according to preliminary information from Chicago Fire officials.
The officers were outside the 22nd District station, 1900 W. Monterey Ave., when they were shot, fire officials said.
Illinois State Police said they were assisting the Chicago Police Department after officers were shot on the 1900 block of West Monterey around 6 a.m. Avenue Wednesday morning near the 22nd District police station.
State police said they are searching for a suspect who was in a white Chevrolet Impala.
All three who were shot had non-life threatening injuries. The Chicago officer was shot in the shoulder.
Officials are also investigating in the area of 119th Street and I-57 which may be related to the shooting.
The shooting took place sometime around 6 a.m. outside the Chicago Police Department’s 22nd District, located at 1900 W. Monterey Ave.
One was shot in the hand, another was shot in the arm and one suffered a superficial graze wound to the head, possibly caused by a bullet or glass, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.
