    I can't tell if it was the cop or the criminal, but somebody needed a round in the chamber so their gun would go bang instead of click. Hopefully it was the criminal but how does a cop get shot in the back unless it was friendly fire? So many questions...

    Yeah, it's hard to read what's what, but the officer is gonna be ok and the BG is lucky.

    The officer, who was undercover, was shot in his back while pursuing a suspect who also was shot at East Grand Boulevard and Mack Avenue, near Swanson Funeral Home.
    Shot in the back while chasing a suspect?

    When exchanging gunfire with police officers, the suspect was shot at the funeral home.
    Oh the irony.

    Glad the LEO's alright.

    "A plain clothes officer was standing right there and we didn't know it was a cop and we saw him pull the gun, like this, and he pulled the trigger and it clicked, like there wasn't a round in it.
    Sounds like the Cop didn't have one chambered,maybe he figured it was safer that way,until he needs his gun and forgets to chamber a round,Officer may have been shot as he turned to dive for cover when his gun went CLICK.

    dukalmighty - good point, didn't think of it. Brains still kicking into gear, 4:18AM and just poured the first cup of coffee.

    ... and the article was pretty scant on exactly what happened too. In my defense

    BUT.....BUT....BUT....it only takes a second to chamber a round, in fact if you practice you can chamber a round in .5 second!
