Off duty officer shoots would be robber

Surveillance video shows an off-duty sheriff's officer shooting a robbery suspect in Chicago. Now, police say they are searching for the other two suspects who escaped during the robbery attempt.



The would-robber who was killed was 16 years old, and his accomplices may be around the same age. Chicago police are investigating whether the three are connected to a series of similar robberies.

On Tuesday night, friends of the alleged robber who was killed left tokens of mourning at the gas station where police say the cook county sheriff's sergeant acted in self-defense...



"When you see that video, you're just stunned and just incredibly happy that he was not harmed," said Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.

The video shows the off-duty sergeant filling up at a pump when three men approach him demanding valuables, one of them pointing a gun.

With his left hand, the sergeant appears to fumble in his pocket before pulling out his gun with his right hand and firing at the would-be robber, hitting him in the head.
