Gunman wearing body armor shot dead near Illinois school

6 posts in this topic

The incident began at about 8 a.m. CT on Wednesday when police were called for a suspicious person taking photographs of schools in the area of 22nd Street and Bethesda Boulevard in Zion, a city about 40 miles northwest of Chicago.

“The suspicious person was located by officers and a foot pursuit ensued,” said Detective Christopher Covelli, a spokesman for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. “It appeared the offender was wearing body armor. After the foot pursuit, a struggle with the offender and officers ensued which resulted in the offender being shot.”

The suspect was transported to Vista East Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Hmmm, guess they'll have to start a search for "motivation"?  Hmmm again, no description of the "Suspect"? Apart from him wearing body armor? Yeah, I wear Kevlar when *I'm* out photographing stuff - not. If it'd been one school, I could guess pedophilia, but several??? GOOD CATCH Shep, hadn't seen this on the big networks! Betting the perp was "Asian" ;-)

Who knew that winter clothing foils tasers? Bundle up! Or not and get shot dead.

A 38-year-old man wearing a homemade tactical-style vest and carrying an Airsoft BB gun was fatally shot after he led police on a chase that ended in a struggle in a Zion alley Wednesday morning, Lake County authorities said.

Authorities declined to identify the man, who was white, or his hometown at a news conference Wednesday afternoon. They also declined to say how many times the man was shot or where.

Covelli said officers tried to use a Taser but it did not work because of winter clothing.

Of course he was white... wonder if we'll ever see proof of that? The carrying a BB gun, home-made body armor, a mock up to see how he could attack, how easy it was to get to potential targets to prep for a "real thing". He could just be a loonie, but not adding up to me.
