    Police shoot, kill pizza delivery robbery suspect

    February 11, 2007
    FROM STNG WIRE REPORTS

    A 15-year-old boy was fatally shot by police on the South Side late Saturday after he allegedly tried to rob an undercover detective posing as a pizza delivery driver.

    Another suspect was also shot by police and a third male, believed to be a suspect who fled the scene, is in police custody.

    The 15-year-old was identitfied as Lazeric Wood, of the 8100 block of S. Homan Ave., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. Wood, who, according to the medical examiner's office was shot on the 8000 block of S. Spaulding Ave., was pronounced dead at 3:30 a.m. at the Stein Institute.

    The shooting occurred as police have been investigating an existing pattern of robberies of food delivery drivers on the South Side Ashburn neighborhood, a business alert was issued by police at the end of January for the area between 75th and 83rd Streets and Kedzie and Homan Avenues for the robberies, according to police News Affairs Deputy Director Pat Camden.

    About 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Wentworth Area Robbery detectives received a call from a pizza restaurant in the area, reporting that they received an order from the possible stick up men described in the alert. Detectives in an undercover car picked up the pizza and went to the address, located in the 8000 block of South Spaulding Avenue.

    A detective walked up to the address to deliver the pizza, but no one was at the home. Upon returning to the unmarked car, he was approached by three offenders, described as black males, one of whom was allegedly armed. According to Camden, the offenders demanded the detective’s money and the pizza.

    The detective opened fire, killing the armed offender and shooting another offender in the foot. A third offender fled from the scene.

    The injured offender was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, he said.

    A semi-automatic weapon was recovered from the scene. Police do have a third suspect in custody however, they have yet to determine if he is the third offender from the robbery, Camden said. No charges have been filed as of early Sunday.

    A roundtable discussion to determine if the detective’s actions in the shooting were in accordance with police and state guidelines will be held Sunday morning.

    Now this boys Mom is going to get on the TV and talk about how her little baby would never rob someone. The police killed him for no reason, they didnt need to shoot him down. Etc etc.


    But from what I have heard from the media.....yea I know the media. It sounds like a good shoot.

    Good riddance - A shooting buddy of mine was stuck up by a 16-year-old carjacker with a 9mm a year or so ago, and the little punk wound up in the hospital with a 44 Magnum wound. Good life lesson for him.

    Some days things just go right.

    Undercover Officer Shoots, Kills Teen Robbery Suspect

    POSTED: 9:14 am CST February 11, 2007
    UPDATED: 7:13 pm CST February 11, 2007

    CHICAGO -- Chicago police said a detective who was posing as a pizza delivery man shot and killed a 15-year-old robbery suspect and wounded another late Saturday night on the city's Southwest Side.

    A third suspect fled, but police later arrested a man who matched his description.

    Police spokesman Pat Camden said the shootings occurred during a police crackdown on people who had been robbing pizza deliverymen in the area.

    Camden said police issued an alert to pizza stores last month asking for their cooperation in telling police of suspicious activities. When a store owner called late Saturday night to say that someone had ordered four pizzas to be delivered to a block where several robberies had occurred, the detective agreed to pose as a deliveryman.

    Last month, police issued a business alert for the area between 75th and 83rd streets and Kedzie and Homan avenues.

    Camden said there was no answer at the address Saturday night where the pizza was to be delivered, and as the detective went to leave, he was approached by three people, one of them armed with a gun. They demanded the pizza and money.

    Shot and killed by police was Lazeric Wood of the 8100 block of South Homan Avenue, a high school junior who was a member of his school's dance team.

    "For a young child to go that early, it ain't right. It ain't right," said the boy's grieving mother, Canery Rucker.

    A tearful friend Dominick Boden said, "I don't think he rally tried to rob them, man, because he already knows something's happening around here, and he's not with that. He doesn't gang-bang. He doesn't do none of that. He just goes to school and dances."

    The family was claiming police brutality and said they planned to hire an attorney.

    Camden said police identified themselves as officers, warned Lazeric to drop the weapon and have witnesses to back up that account.

    Lazeric did have a prior arrest.

    AND OF COURSE HERE IS THE LITTLE BASTARD ANGELS PICTURE:



    they couldn't show the rest of the body because he was holding an AK for the picture. Rot in hell you little shit.

    The parents see dollar signs - They raised the little bastard and instilled his values, so I'm not surprised.

    I'm sure this has made pizza delivery people feel safer in that area - there have been quite a few of them killed around the country.

    I've known a few who packed guns against their company rules, and I don't blame them a bit - I would too.
