    Wow : Cop Dressed as a Clown Shoots Robber!

    Could put this in the "now I have seen it all" department. At first, didn't believe it since it happend in Chicago, IL and we all know their gun laws prevent any criminal from obtaining one and using it. Bounced back to reality and got a kick out of the story.


    Off-duty officer dressed as clown fatally shoots robber: police

    An off-duty Chicago Police officer — who was dressed as a clown and leaving a community fund-raising event for toddlers — fatally shot a 16-year-old boy trying to rob him on the South Side Friday night, police said.

    The teen approached the off-duty officer at 10:10 p.m. in the 1900 block of West 87th Street and produced a gun, according to a statement from police.

    The officer and the teen struggled, and the gun discharged and struck the boy, police said.

    The teen’s weapon was recovered at the scene, police said.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the teen as Jerry Moore of the 8500 block of South Seeley. He died at the scene, officials said.

    The officer is “very active’’ in the community and was in the costume because he was entertaining toddlers attending a sleepover at a daycare center prior to the shooting, according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

    The officer suffered minor injuries, police said. No children were nearby when the incident occurred, police said.

    Calumet Area detectives and the Independent Police Review Authority are investigating.

    Let me guess, he wasn't raised that way and was just beginning to turn his life around.

    Funny, the first story I read said the LEO took the gun and shot the perp. I wonder if the clown was armed, as I suspect all clowns are.

    Was the officer carrying off-duty, or did he turn "the" gun on the BG?

    My understanding was that the teen was shot with his own gun. I've not heard anything about the officer using a weapon of his own.

    Good think he didn't pull a gun that has a stick pop out with bang on it

    I too think so. And this is obviously in favor of officer. Else carrying a weapon off duty can cost him...

    "The officer and the teen struggled, and the gun discharged and struck the boy, police said." Reporters wording.

    The officer and the robber struggled over the robbers gun which discharged striking the robber, police said. My wording.

    Jerry Moore was committing an armed robbery and suffered the consequences of his actions. He brought the gun to the incident.

    Good on the officer.

    Gee how much money did the kid think a clown would have? Do clown suits even have pockets?
