Chicago cop shot in head on Northwest Side, 15 year-old also wounded

I work in Des Plaines. And the last time I checked Old Irving Park was a pretty good neighborhood.

From CBS Chicago:
A Chicago Police officer was shot in the side of the head Tuesday night in a gun battle with a bank robbery suspect on Irving Park Road near the Kennedy Expressway.

Two others were also shot.

The shooting happened early Tuesday evening. Sources said it all started with a bank robbery in Des Plaines that led to a chase all the way to Irving Park Road near Kildare Avenue.

Sources told CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar that the suspected bank robber went into UpBeat Music and Arts music school, 4318 W. Irving Park Rd. Police went in after him, and shots were fired.
Caught in the crossfire was a 15-year-old boy.

And to think just yesterday it was a rare Chiraq day when no one was shot.
