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.

This has nothing to do with public sentiment over the shooting of Black lives. This is a callous dangerous individual. You see, all lives matter. We are not a race who just hate the police or law and order. That's what the supremacists want people to believe. Just like I could say that when you do evil to people, it comes back to bite you in the ass! They are trying to start a race war. What better way than to get people on the side of the "law". You see, just like there are bad people in every race and nationality, there are bad people in the police force who take advantage of the uniform and badge. Evil lurks everywhere.. Remember the devil is a liar and stirs up strife!

@ Mssusieqno, Black on Black violence is the results not challenging White Supremacy. They have no social power to fight.  I hate when a black person said" What about black on black crime" They already know the reason. They can't socially or destroy White supremacy. Also, White Supremacist think that we are failures.  We are not failures because we design this society. Us Black people are scare to revolt because they think they will be protected. Our lottery card will always be pick. Fight Black People. Don't be a b****.

Said well James. Too much Black on Black crime.
Comment by James Gibbs on September 1, 2015 at 10:29pm

Again, What will we do about White Supremacy? Black people are giving a lot excuses. We don't even have a "Code of Conduct". I will fight White Supremacy and defy their their methods because I'm tired of their bull s*** there no justice for the slain young black males and females. Black people are giving a lot excuses to kill us. Be strong black people. Black people will throw shades at me, I don't give a f***. Most black people are weak to white  systematic racism. Most Black people are scare and they get mad with other black people.

S*** been happening to us for yrs can't call it a cowardly act when an its cowards that hide behind a shield

At the end of the day, these murders are senseless. The problem is the police didn't realize that all they were putting African Americans through was eventually gonna come back to haunt them. This is not slavery days anymore. Blacks are fighting back to be heard. It's sad that it has to the same token to be heard. Murder against Murder. They murder us, we murder them back. We know it's not right but unfortunately, White cops got away with so much on our population that our communities will not stand for more. Will it ever change, We don't know but it never should have started. A white guy kills a state trooper in PA, he gets caught but not shot. Another white guys escapes from prison with a fellow inmate, ok one gets s*** and killed but the other one lives. A white cop asks for a black man's ID in a gas station, he goes to reach for it and gets shot while grabbing his ID. Another black man, in hips car smoking a cigarette is told to exit his car when he didn't do anything, he gets murdered by the white cop. Shot straight in the HEAD. Ramarley Graham ,black teen killed, NYC. Trayvon Martin, killed by a wanna be cop, GZ. Michael Brown and many more. It's unbelievable and unfortunate, but this is the reason cops are targets right now. It's a war the may never stop, and if does, who knows what decade it wil be because it sure ain't going to stop no time soon. However, I do have sympathy for both sides because senseless is senseless no matter what. No the major of our black angry men will face life sentences for these crimes because the judicial system is not fair and has never been for our people . I can't take it anymore! Signed, sad black woman. Angry black woman. Also, mourning black woman, for all the families during this sensible time.

Most black people are scare because of  social status. Your lottery card can be pick at anytime. I rather defy White Supremacy then to be a b**** to their terms. It will get worst for us, stand up for yourselves. Don't killed your your Brothas and Sistas, we need them to fight.....fight the f****** the system. I'm being bold because most black people are f****** scare.
