COPA RELEASES VIDEO & OTHER MATERIALS FROM OFF-DUTY OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING NEAR 1300 W. 90th STREET
Today, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) released video and other materials from an off-duty officer-involved shooting near 1300 W. 90th Street. COPA investigators immediately responded to the scene and began the investigation.
On January 18, 2023, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) notified COPA of an officer-involved shooting. Based on preliminary information, the incident began when an off-duty officer approached four subjects who appeared to be in an altercation in the 1300 block of West 90th Street.
Three of the subjects eventually departed and walked west bound on 90th Street. One subject remained and continued to engage with the off-duty officer. As the off-duty officer began to walk away, the subject grabbed her from behind and reached for her weapon, which resulted in a physical struggle. As both parties fell to the ground, the off-duty officer’s weapon discharged, striking the subject, who later succumbed to his injuries.
COPA has released to its website for the officer involved shooting: third-party video, OEMC Transmissions, Case Incident, Tactical Response and Arrest Reports, which can be viewed by visiting: https://www.chicagocopa.org/case/2023-0000239/
