    Police shoot teen in Cabrini Green

    August 7, 2006

    FROM STNG WIRE REPORTS

    Chicago police officers shot and critically wounded a teenaged boy who pointed a gun at them near the Cabrini-Green housing complex on the Near North Side Monday night, a police spokesman said.

    Near North District officers shot the teen multiple times after he pulled a chrome gun from his pocket and began raising it at the officers at the Cabrini Green housing projects, police News Affairs Deputy Director Pat Camden said. The boy and another teen, currently in custody, were suspected in an armed robbery.

    A Near North District sergeant was flagged down around 330 W. Division St. about 5:10 p.m. by a victim who pointed out the offenders, saying they tried to rob the victim at gunpoint, Camden said. The offenders saw the victim talking to the sergeant and they bolted. The sergeant provided a description of the suspects over police radio.

    A squad car containing uniformed officers spotted a boy matching the description of a suspect at Clybourn and Division. The boy had his hands in his pockets when the officers got out of their vehicle, Camden said. They announced they were police officers and ordered the boy to put his hands up, Camden added.

    The boy, about 13 to 14 years old, pulled his hands out of his pocket and in one hand had a chrome handgun that he raised towards the officers, Camden said. The officers fired several times at the boy, hitting him.

    Camden said the boy was hit multiple times, and Fire Media Director Larry Langford said the boy was shot at least twice. The teen was taken to Children's Memorial Hospital in critical condition, according to Langford and Camden.

    Camden said the second suspect, also about 13 to 14 years old, was arrested in the area and another weapon was recovered. No charges had been filed as of about 8 p.m., he added.


    A roundtable discussion into the police shooting will take place Monday night, and the results will be available some time Tuesday, Camden said.

    If their old enough to point a gun at an officer, their old enough to be shot in the officer's defence. If your a bg and don't want to be shot don't carry a weapon, and if your dumb enough to carry a weapon don't point it at police.
