Cop shot dead in Chicago suburb during traffic stop

When police officers reports to work--they put their lives on the line.

Can you say that about your job? I can't.

This morning another cop was murdered--this time in the sleepy far-northern suburb of Chicago.

From CBS Chicago:
A manhunt was underway in far north suburban Fox Lake, after a police officer was shot and killed during a traffic stop.

Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Cmdr. George Filenko said an officer was shot Tuesday morning near Rollins Road and Route 59. Sources said the officer has died.

According to sources, it started with a traffic stop on Rollins Road, when pepper spray was deployed, and the officer was shot.

People in the area were being told to stay inside their homes and businesses. Grant Community High School in Fox Lake and St. Bede School in neighboring Ingleside were placed on lockdown at the request of Fox Lake Police as police search for the suspects.
