CHICAGO (CBS) — A manhunt was underway in far north suburban Fox Lake, after a police officer was shot and killed during a traffic stop.
Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Cmdr. George Filenko said an officer was shot Tuesday morning near Rollins Road and Route 59. Sources said the officer has died, although police officials have yet to comment publicly on the officer’s condition.
Lake County Sheriff’s Det. Chris Covelli said, around 7:50 a.m., the officer radioed he was pursuing three suspects, after looking into their “suspicious activity.” Police lost radio contact with the officer, who was later found with a gunshot wound.
