    Man shot after pulling gun in police station
    He points weapon at officer, gets hit in arm, cops say

    January 23, 2007
    BY ANNIE SWEENEY Crime Reporter
    Chicago Police shot a man in the arm Monday afternoon after he walked into a police station and pointed a gun at officers, authorities said.
    The man, whose name was not released, walked into the Grand Crossing station, 7040 S. Cottage Grove, about 4:30 p.m., approached an officer who was on the phone and said, 'Can I have a word with you?''' District Cmdr. John Franklin said. The officer responded by telling him yes, but to wait until he was off the phone, Franklin said.


    'He didn't say a word'
    After the officer hung up -- within a couple of minutes -- he turned to the man and asked what he wanted. The man reached into his pants pocket and pulled out a gun, according to Franklin.
    "He didn't say a word, he just pulled out his weapon,'' Franklin said.

    An officer behind the desk fired his weapon at the man after he refused to drop the weapon, which was cocked, Franklin said. He did not know whether it was loaded.

    The man was shot in the upper left arm and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

    Franklin had been at the desk just seconds before the man walked into the station. He heard the shooting from his office. "I heard, 'Gun, gun! He's got a gun,''' he said. "I heard pow, pow, pow. And I could see a cloud of gun powder.''

    Franklin said one of the bullets shattered his window, and he used a side door to get back to the front desk.

    At that point the man was on the ground. He appeared upset, but never indicated about what, Franklin said.

    Franklin said there were civilians in the station at the time, but none was in the line of fire. Charges were pending.

    I hope they slam him hard with criminal charges.

    That guy shoulda known that handguns are illegal in Chicago, and he can't have them there. Maybe he was just trying to turn it in like a good law abiding criminal...

    Ok, I'm done being sarcastic. Either he was drugged up on something, or wanted to have suicide by cop.

    Now, I'm just guessin', here, but I'm gonna say, ". . . upset about being SHOT! That'd get to anybody!


    I'm wondering . . . One guy, who sounds like he was just calmly standing there, did not fire, did not aim his gun at the cops . . . Why did a shot go so wild that it broke the other officer's office window? How many shots were fired, by how many officers, and how many hit the subject? That other cop is lucky he wasn't hit, I suppose.

    BG lived to misbehave another day. Officers need some more range time.

    Looks like an attempted "suicide by cop"! Glad that there isn't someone that now has to have that on their mind.
