Manhunt for 3 suspects underway in Chicago after cop shot

The discovery of the dead officer comes at the same time as police in Fox Lake, Illinois, have launched a search for three armed suspects in the death of an officer.

Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, 52, died of gunshot wounds Tuesday morning in the Chicago suburb, prompting a search for three suspicious men he was chasing just before he died.

Officer Allen's death also came just days after a sheriff's deputy, Darren Goforth, was shot dead at a gas station near Houston while filling up his patrol car.

The latest killing - the third in less than a week - has prompted fear among other officers.

Another police death: Darren Goforth was shot dead outside Houston on Friday

According to CNN, Abilene police chief Stan Standridge said: 'The initial reaction was fear. Why was Officer Allen chosen?

'That speaks volumes as it relates to how vulnerable are we. ... We look like we're prepared for anything.

'But the reality is, we're just like you. We go to the same schools in this community. We attend the same churches. We eat at the same restaurants. We are just like you.' 

Allen, who had worked as a police officer since his early 20s, had recently got engaged.

Abilene's chief of police, Stan Standridge, described him as a 'great man and freat peace officer' who was dutiful and respected by his peers.

Standridge said: 'This family is heartbroken over the loss of their loved one, as is our police family. Parents should not have to bury their children, and this family certainly needs our love and prayers during this time.'

Allen is due to be buried later this week.


Houston Sheriff's Deputy Shot & Killed While Pumping Gas. Suspect's Mother Turns Him In (Video/Pics) Would you turn your own child in?

Police with helicopters, dogs and armed with rifles were conducting a massive manhunt in northern Illinois Tuesday after an officer was shot and killed while pursuing a group of suspicious men.

The officer, who has not been identified publicly, radioed in to tell dispatchers he was chasing three men on foot in the city of Fox Lake, 55 miles north of Chicago. Communication with him was lost soon after, said Lake County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli.

"His backup arrived shortly thereafter and found him injured with a gunshot wound," Covelli said. "The officer has succumbed to his injuries and passed away."

Undersheriff Raymond Rose told the Chicago Tribune that the officer had also been stripped of his gun and other equipment.

Police and other law enforcement, some of them in military-style camouflage, were seen taking up positions on rooftops and along railroad tracks, scanning the terrain with rifle scopes and binoculars. Others leaned out of helicopters with weapons at the ready.

Nearby Grant Community High School was placed on hard lockdown with children and staff instructed to say hidden and away from windows.

"Grant continues to remain in a lockdown situation at the direction of the Fox Lake Police Department," the school said in an update on its website.

It said all students and staff were safe, with administrators going from room to room.

Authorities in Fox Lake have notified a number of other law enforcement agencies to ask for assistance, including the FBI, which is sending agents to help in the investigation. Cara Smith, chief strategist for the Cook County Sheriff's Department, said two bloodhounds from the department were taken to the heavily wooded county to assist in the search.


A sheriff's deputy in uniform was shot and killed Friday night while filling up his patrol car at a suburban Houston gas station, according to authorities.

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was pumping gas into his vehicle about 8:30 p.m. Friday when a man approached him from behind and fired multiple shots, Harris County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ryan Sullivan told The Associated Press. Once the deputy fell to the ground, the suspect fired more shots.

Police described the suspect as a dark-complexioned male who is believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, and stands about 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall. He was wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts and driving a red or maroon pickup-style truck with an extended cab. Police said an intensive search for the suspect remained ongoing Saturday morning.

Suspected shooter

No motive was determined for the shooting. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said Goforth, who was a 10-year veteran of the force, had a wife and two children.

"In my 45 years in law enforcement, I can't recall another incident so cold-blooded and cowardly," Hickman said.

Sheriff's office spokesman Deputy Thomas Gilliland said Goforth had traveled to the Chevron station where the shooting happened, after earlier responding to a routine car accident.

"He was pumping gas into his vehicle. and the male suspect came up behind him and shot the deputy multiple times," Gilliland told the Houston Chronicle ( ). "The deputy fell to ground. the suspect came over and shot the deputy again multiple times as he lay on the ground."

He said Goforth died at the scene. Detectives were checking security camera video for possible clues.

"We are actively searching for suspect right now," Gilliland said. "I can tell you with diligence and justice the suspect will be caught. And he will be brought to justice ... This is a very callous individual."

Harris County Sheriff's deputies and homicide investigators joined officers from other agencies, including the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Houston Police Department, in searching for the suspect.

"This is a very tough moment right now for the Harris County Sheriffs Office," Gilliland said. "Keep us in your prayers and in your thoughts."

Bob Goerlitz, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization, said the incident was "shocking."

"We've been warned of things like this, because of public sentiment nationally and events over the last few years ... It's just horrific. That's the only way to describe it."

******** UPDATE ***********

At the end of a successful SWAT scene Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies captured the suspect for the murder of HCSO Deputy Darren Goforth. . He was taken into custody  at Pine Falls and Sunny Ridge in Northwest Harris County, We're told his mother assisted in leading investigators to her son.

dont think this illustrates black frustration at police brutality or black lives matter related, or anything of that nature... if or when such atmosphere reallyu is the case, it would be s

 alot more cops ambushed thru out nation.  if the citizens decided they were that vexed and tired  to point of rampant police attacks,,, they are always their, and as such actually easy targets, and the numbers would be much higher then the current less then ten amount.  this shooting smells of something more, and of someone who was a elusive enough, as if aware/experienced in police tactics... and knew how to counter-move. ( i,e, law enforcement individual(s) )....

Oh well, Sh*t happens, cops getting hurt or killed is an occupational hazard. Like war casualty for a military personnel. Its that type of environment, anything can go down at anytime.. Its apart of the job like it or not. Thats what you sign up for if you choose to be a cop.
Comment by BIG F* on September 7, 2015 at 4:55am

@ TonyMJ, To answer your questions, when you asked "who controls the media" we first got to know and understand what each of us look at as a media. To me a media can be the news channel on TV, a newspaper, a magazine, the internet, basically anything that sends out news, caribbeanfever is even a form of a media. Now, when you ask me "who controls the media" the only answer I can give you in the people rather they are white or black. But, just so that you know there are white media outlets out there like fox news and there are black media outlets out there like BET, just to name one. Now, your next question was "who controls the cops". Well depending on which law enforcement agency you are talking about which I think you are most likely talking about the local police officers and they are controlled by the Mayor of that city, and just so that you know there are many cities out here that have black Mayors, my city (Newark, NJ) is one of them. So, by you answering your own question with the wrong answer, it seem to me that you are the one that's talking foolish.

See you really misunderstood my hold first comment and then you tried to come for me when I didn't even send for you!!! Yes there are a lot of white out here that hate blacks and there are a lot of blacks out here that hate whites. The message that I was trying to send and people to understand is that not everybody have a race problem. There are whites that get alone with blacks good and blacks that get alone with whites goods. Whites should not look at all blacks as thugs and killers because there are a few blacks that are thugs and killers and blacks should not look at all white cops as black people killers just because there are a few white cops that are black people killers. Now, you are right it is wrong for a police officer to kill without a cause and I back you up 100% on that but the real problem come when the higher authority let them get away with it. It's f**ked up that the cops did what they did but it's even more f**ked up that they let them get away with it!!!  There was a lot of wrong them cops did and they know it, but at the same time that don't mean walk up on a old white cop pumping gas and fill him full of bullets. Now, if the cop had been one of the police officers that did the killing then my debate with you wouldn't even been a debate cause I probably would had sided with you. Like I said don't nobody deserve to be killed no matter what the color of they skin is but it's sad to say in this world people are killed everyday black and white.

I see you spoke about slavery. Quick question, what is the new slavery??? The way I see things, blacks never left the full life of slavery and my reason for saying that is before back in slavery (from what I learned) the only reason blacks stayed in slavery for so long because they didn't know how to come together and be one union and fight together. I could never understand how one white man could have 100 black salves and them 100 black salves didn't never come together and free they self by killing that one white man and the other few that came alone. Slavery back in the day was no more then a easy mind game the white man played on black people. Most black people was uneducated and didn't know any better, they was scared and believed everything the white man told them, but the worst thing abut slavery that still go on today is that the white man turned blacks against blacks!!! I truly believe that blacks could of been took over the United States if they all knew how to come together and work together. But do you really think slavery got a chance to come back in full force with this new generation??? There are going to always be whites that hate blacks and blacks that hate whites but I just can not see the whips and chains no more!!! Question, if a white man came to your door with a whip and chain and told you that he was taking you to pick cotton, what would you do??? The only thing that would make this world a better place is that everybody respect each other. Now, you said that America wants free slave labor again for the money. You kind of lost me on that one because if that really was the case then instead of them coming up with a law saying that all Americans most have health coverage they would of came up with a law saying all Americans that is of age to work must work. Just look at the way the system is set up, people that get up and work they a** off got hard out here and people that sit at home and do nothing all day get free money, free food, free housing, help paying they light bill, free home phone, free cell phone, and free health insurance. Now you tell me how is that slavery???

You said that they did not pay us for the 450 years and whats the interest for 40 acres and a mule. What is the 450 years??? Slavery lasted in this country for only 245 years, it started in 1620 and ended in 1865. Now, there was still strong hate coming from white people toward blacks and they still had the white only and color only signs but again if blacks would had came together they could of stopped that sh*t a long time before it did stop. Now, as far as the 40 acres and a mule go, you can let that sh*t go because if you don't get out there and work for your 40 acres and a mule then you will never get it!!! The 40 acres and a mule was really for the freed slaves after the war. The slaves was told that they would get 40 acres and a mule of the farms they worked. Why did black people believe that sh*t, your guess is as good as mine. Was you a slave and did you work on a farm???

Now, you said that I fail to understand what war is. But it seen to me that you fail to understand what war is especially if you said "we can deal with black on black after this white on black bull sh*t". If you knew any better then you know that in order to deal with white on black you must first deal with and get the black on black sh*t right first!!! It will always be white on black as long as there is black on black!!! The whites fill like they don't have much killing to do if we killing each other for them. Now, you speak about the God and the bible. If we all lived by God rules and laws in the bible trust me we wouldn't even be having this talk because God rules and laws was deep, I mean deeper then the rules and laws we live by today.

For what has been gng on w the black death in the past yr & months, I'm not surprised to read this. Also, I do believe the frustration (of the accused past officers of the slain/murdered black individuals) has sparked the 'runways' attention as pay back. Ppl in general are tired of the brutality and lies among the law enforcement (ie. the death of that young woman in jail and her murders admitted the killing - law enforcement). If I am not mistaken, cops or blue collard or police or law enforcement are supposed to SERVE AND PROTECT the citizens not to kill and protect themselves then 'get away with murder'. Prayers to all. Whatever negativity you have after reading my comments and others then I suggest you repeat it in your mirror.

@ Big F, Either way you put it brother, who controls the media ? Who controls the cops, surely not blacks! And yes they want to start a national incident and grooming the people for it, either way its still evil and wrong, they will never stop experimenting and antagonizing black people their is a deep rooted perpetual hatred for blacks by whites thats a fact, black on black or white on white dont make it right or an excuse for officers who are supposed to up hold the law to commit criminal acts of murder, killing and murder are two different things, people kill plants and animals to eat or in some cases kill in self defense, but murder is killing without a cause for it. And this is where the problem comes in, media antagonism is a set up to cause the people to revolt, likewise police committing murdering blacks is antagonistic. And the purpose behind this is for ethnic cleansing and filling the quota for the new slavery, for the prison industrial complexes, i like white people but the bible says the love of money is the root cause of all evil, so Amerikkka wants free slave labor again for the money, to get rich again cause their broke, and the beat goes on. They have not payed us for the 450 years and whats the interest for 40 acres and a mule. So here they come again, so as far as cops there is only the puppet and the puppet masters, same situation in politics promise the people roads paved with good intentions and then betray the people, black people are tired, God will and always activate solutions perminently He always had.i understand your sentiment but you fail to understand what war is and how its being forced on blacks because whites have the advantage. The blacks murdered wanted peace and got death, this issues here is not white on white or black on black, the issues are white on black and who keeps doing it, we can deal with white on white or black on black after this white on black bull s***.
Comment by BIG F* on September 4, 2015 at 5:10am

@ TonyMJ, You said it troubles you to hear me speak so foolish, right??? But I can tell that you not hearing yourself talk or you didn't read my comment at all. But, just for you I will go through my comment step by step hoping that you will get a clear and better understanding of what I was saying!!! First I started out by saying "instead of black lives matter or cop lives matter, I would say all lives matter". Meaning I don't care what color you are or what job title you carry, your life matter. Now can you please tell how foolish that sound???

Now, you gave me some examples which include most of the cops killing black people that happened recently. Not one time did I speak on any of them killings or even say that it was right for the cops to kill them. But, what I did say is that "things got so bad that every time something happen and it involve a black and white person it's always a race thing behind it". The meaning behind me saying that is the media got everybody so f**ked up that the minute a killing happen between whites and black they are so quick to air that sh*t and get everybody to start playing the race game. But in the mean time we have so many white on white killings and black on black killings out here everyday. Then I went on to explain what I knew so far about the cops that was killed and I even told you that I heard that the cops was chasing a white male dressed in all black in the woods. So there you go right there, a white on white killing!!! We only know for sure that one of the cops that was killed was done by a black man and that's because he was caught on camera and his mother turned him in. But, the media want you to think it's blacks out here killing all these cops because of the killings of the black people by white cops and you right away believed that sh*t. Now, can you please tell me how foolish do that sound???

Then I said "I personally don't wish death on any one and I damn sure don't wish death on no one family like some one did in a comment". Meaning I'm not going to sit here and say "I'm happy they got killed or they family need to be killed too"!!! I won't even say that about my worst enemy!!! But, maybe you and me have different believe beliefs because I believe that if you do wrong to some one, wrong would come back to you. Or if you wish bad on someone then bad would come upon you and wishing someone get killed or they family get killed could back fire and you be the one that get killed or your family be the ones who get killed. Then I said "I love my family and it brings me joy to come home to them every night after work". Meaning, why would I wish death on somebody or they family when I know how much it would hurt me if it happened to me or my family. Now, can you please tell me how foolish that sound???

Then I said "if these cops was killed because of the black people that was killed by white cops then why not go after the white cops that did the killing of the black people". Then I gave an example by saying "if a black man kill your brother then most likely you are going to go out looking for that black man because you not going to go out and kill every black man you see". Then I said "all cops are not bad cops no matter what other people say or think". But, if you go back a few sentences you would see where I said "this is a clear case of one bad apple spoil a bunch". Meaning, there are a few f**ked up white police officers and now people look at all white police officers as being f**ked up. The same thing go for the black race, we have a few f**ked up people in our race and white people or white police officers think the hold black race is f**ked up. Now, please tell how foolish that sound???

Now, just so that you would know. I felt the pain of them black people families who lost there love ones to the hands of a racist white police officer!!! My heart, prayers, and support went out to them families!!! I was truly upset and mad is hell that they got away with it!!! I know first hand how bad it is to run into a white or a black police officer who think they are bad and untouchable because they are a police officer!!! I had a white police officer pulled his gun on me before. In fact, here is a short story of me going through something with two white police officers but one was cool and the other was f**ked up. There was a police mobile truck sitting by the bus stop I was getting off the bus at in Newark, NJ. I had just got off work that night, so I get off the bus light a cigarette and I began to walk home but as soon as I walked passed the police mobile truck there two white police officers who jumped out and ordered me to stop. So, I stopped because I knew I didn't and wasn't doing anything wrong. They ordered me to put my hands on the gate which I did. The f**ked up officer ordered me to drop my cigarette but I told him that I would put it out because I'm not about to throw my cigarette down when I just lit it cause cigarettes cost to much. The f**ked up cop grabbed my hand and broke my cigarette in half which made me mad is hell but the other cop asked me to calm down and let him speak to me for a minute. He went on to explain the reason why they stopped me and claim they didn't see me just get off the bus. But to make a long story short, he said that I fit the discretion of a robbery suspect. So I asked the cool officer what is the discretion and he said "young black male wearing blue jeans, white t-shirt, tan boots". My reply to that was "s*** that's 90% of the young black males in Newark". But, while the f**ked up officer was trying to talk s*** the cool officer said "I will let you hear the discretion for your self" and when he called dispatch back and asked them to repeat the discretion the dispatch said "young black male wearing blue jeans, white t-shirt, tan boots, with dreads or braids" and being that I did not have dreads or braids the f**ked up officer walked back to the mobile truck while the cool officer apologize for the misunderstanding and even offered me one of his cigarette. I told him that its alright I understand but the person you looking for is long gone because you wasted some much time on me. 

Before I leave let me answer your questions. If my family was treated that way and the cop got away with it I would be mad is hell and if I was to go for revenge then I would most likely go after the cop who did it. To answer your next question, there are white cops that have to shoot and kill white people but like I said above you really only hear about a cop killing when it's a white and black person involved because that's the only news the media want to go country wide. Just think about how much killing go on everyday around this country and how of it that you hear about. Now you said I speak foolish, what do you call your speaking???       

Comment by Kay on September 4, 2015 at 12:50am

this 1 with the chasing 3 suspects 2 white 1 black... seems very suspicious, and in fact false and fake... did that officer actually see these 3 suspects b4 being shot... or did he just report what another officer told him to radio in b4 shooting him?  helicopters police cameras everywhere and they got nothing of substance? sounds like inside job... ijs

Comment by Jerimiah 1:4--10 on September 3, 2015 at 8:13am
@ Big F*, your view of whats happening is off, ill tell you why, lets say your a white cop, someone black is running from you, you shoot them in the back blam blam blam, then fabricate a story to make it look like the person did something to justify your actions someone secretly films you committing unjustified murder. Another case white cop choking a black man, the man says 11 times i cant breathe and the white cop chokes him to death anyway, Sandra Bland from Texas black female gets pulled over for failure to signal, she coherently and intelligently explain to the cop shes a bit anoid and says why, white cop tells her extinguish your cigarette she intelligently expressed her 4th amendment rights, then she gets threatened, I'll light you up says the white cop, then he violently pulls her out of the car, hes banging her head on the curb to the point she is mentioning it. Then she ends up dead in jail. MR BIG F, two questions sir? 1. How would you like for your family since you love them so much, to be treated this way? My 2nd question is, how many whites do you see these things happening to by a white cop? Or even a black cop? These things have been happening since the first day of slavery in the 16 century, its now 2015. It troubles me to hear you speak so foolish, your not right at all something is seriously wrong with you man.
Comment by BIG F* on September 3, 2015 at 5:31am

I read a few of the comments and my opinion about this situation is, instead of saying "black lives matter or cop lives matter" I say "All lives matter"!!! I also see that most people think or say that the cops that was killed because people are tired of them killing blacks. I myself really don't think that's the case and things got so bad that every time something happen and it involve a black and white person it's always a race thing behind. What I know about these cop killings so far is that the cop from Harris County was killed by a black man that has a history of severe mental illness and was turned in my his mother. The cop that was killed in IL, I just heard on the my scanner app that they was in chasing a white male dressed in all black through the woods. This is a clear case of "a few bad apples spoil a bunch". I personally don't wish death on any one and I damn sure don't wish death on nobody family like one person did in a comment. I love my family and it brings me joy to come home to them every night after work. But back to the main subject, If any of these cops was killed because of the killing of blacks killed by cops then I would say "go after the cops that did the killings" because if a black man kill your brother then most likely you are going to go looking for that black man instead of killing every black man you see. Yes I would say it!!! All cops are not bad cops no matter what other people say or think. I have a few cops in my family and they are pretty cool but they do there jobs. If you think about it almost all the killings of blacks by cops have been by them young cops and most likely rookies. Right now All I can say about this situation is that my heart and prayers go out to these families.
