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.

you can find all this information in the library of Congress, google it and look under F E M A executive order.

If a cop dont do what he or she is ordered to do, their job is at risk and they go under terrible scrutiny. All armed government forces such as police FBI ATF CIA and the US Army also, any black male or female belonging to these forces will be detained and their guns will be taken by their superiors once the president makes an executive order for F E M A to act. Good cop or bad, now think about it, dunce cap j5.

J5 you didnt even wait to see if peace would be or can be established and your selling out already, is there any decency or equity or understanding in your mouth? your mind is completely warped. Have you ever looked through the history and really comprehend how blacks were always treated throughout the history of Amerikkka ? This is a plan and any police officer good or bad has to do what their told, there is only the puppets and the puppet masters, your mouth is a perfect dunce cap for your dum thinking. After a while the cops will be so fed up hopefully they will start attacking you brown nosing idiots.

mr1stroke    you spoke the truth brother and every black person that can own a gun should buy one-------NOTE----the reason so many blacks were locked up in the beginning with felony charges was to prevent black  gun ownership 

Comment by mr1stroke on September 2, 2015 at 5:32pm

El-Bull in that case f*** him too, as we can all see only a bunch of white folks out there supporting cops, because they are the one the police are protecting, who else you see being in favor unless he or she is one of those dumb insecure negros, if J5 is with the Government he needs to hurry up and tell them a war is coming, and they wont see which way it is coming from compare to what is out there the cops dont have any weapon, they want to stop it for people to get their hands on weapons but it is so hard since white people love weapons and want to stack them so the law cannot work they are just trying to find a way so people of color cannot buy weapon, by now its too late i have a closet full, and i have another gun show coming up on laborday weekend putting together by the national riffle dealers, which means another opportunity for me to get a few more stuff, so just wait its coming 

Comment by El-Bull on September 2, 2015 at 5:18pm

 mr1stroke  as you can see, J5  appears to be white and is probably a government operative spying on the site and the members that azzhole no mind......It's funny ho cops are murdered but citizens are merely if cops are more of a privileged and exempt class -----THEY REAP WHAT THEY HAVE SOWN----people are no longer laying down passively, waiting to be murdered by them

Comment by mr1stroke on September 2, 2015 at 5:03pm

J5 you and every one who are kissing up to cops have been saying there are good cops for the longest, how about you show me a good cop tell me what makes him a good cop, how come we never see a good cop protecting the innocents from being harrass by another cop, how come no cop comes forward to speak against police brutality, until we see that i say f*** them all, they should burn in hell and kill their families next time
