HARVEY, Ill. - A Metra police officer was shot and killed Wednesday night near the commuter rail system's 147th Street station in Harvey. The officer
was pronounced dead on the scene at 333 E. 147th Pl. in Harvey at 11:50 p.m., according to a spokesman with the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Metra officials said the slaying occurred across the street from Metra's Electric Line station at 147th and Clinton streets.

Metra spokesman Patrick Waldron late Wednesday confirmed that an on-duty officer was killed.

The officer was a former Riverdale police officer and was shot while sitting in his patrol car, according to Harvey and Riverdale police sources.

A Harvey police spokeswoman could not provide details.

The last two people that replied to this thread should be ashamed of themselves (and banned). This officer was just like every other Law Enforcement officer that goes to work daily, knowing that if things happen against their favor, it could be their last. Just doing their job? No, this was more than a job! This tragedy and horrible event was news, and I was glad to see it posted here. What you two have turned this thread into is so disrespectful and aweful, I am at a loss of words.

May God himself bless this officer and his family.

Well put.

And that makes about the 7th officer killed in about 5 days.

Alex, Glenn, this neither the time nor the place.

My prayers are with the fallen officers' family and loved ones.

I agree and apperently someone else agreed also
It is a shame when a tragic story like this turns into a pissing match between 2 posters
May God bless this officers family and God rest his soul
Thank You for your sacrifice

News reports out of Chicago are saying that a suspect is now in custody in this shooting. No charges filed as of yet.
