    MANHUNT UNDERWAY IN FOX LAKE
    http://abc7chicago.com/news/manhunt-...x-lake/965033/

    FOX LAKE, Ill. (WLS) -- A manhunt is underway in far north suburban Fox Lake. Police said they are looking for two men who should be considered armed and dangerous.

    A law enforcement source said a Fox Lake police officer has been shot and killed.

    Initially, police said someone was shot near an old cement plant in the 100-block of Honing Road. Officers were seen searching a wooded area near the scene for several hours Tuesday morning. Canine units were brought in from various jurisdictions, including McHenry County.

    Rollins Road is closed from Route 59 to Grand Avenue. Investigators also blocked off part of the frontage road leading to U.S. 12.

    Metra officials said the tracks near the Ingleside station are closed to southbound traffic. The next inbound Milwaukee District North train is not scheduled to pass through the area until 10:45 a.m.

    Grant Community High School is on hard lockdown. Superintendent Christy Sefcik said the school went on lockdown around 8:30 a.m. She said all students and staff are being kept away from exterior glass and out of view.

    Every law enforcement agency in the area, along with a regional SWAT team, was assisting, according to George Filenko, commander of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.
    Authorities said they were searching for two men and possibly a woman.

    Thank you for starting this thread Katydid23

    from http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburb...901-story.html



    "He then radioed that he was in a "foot pursuit" but communication was lost after that, Covelli said. Other units responded and found him shot at Route 12 and Sayton Road, he said.

    The officer was found in a marshy area, stripped of his gun and other gear, Lake County Undersheriff Raymond Rose. He died at the scene, the undersheriff said.

    Police have established a perimeter and are seeking one black male and two white males, Rose said."

    I wish he hadn't followed 3 men in a foot chase. Way too dangerous these days. A brave and noble action but very treacherous. RIP Officer.

    Such terrible news. I wonder what was suspicious about their behavior that caused this brave officer to pursue them? Tragically, it seems he was alone at the time, so we may not find out. Unless there was more he communicated when he radioed in??

    Reporters on CNN said this is an area that has some vacant weekend homes and there are a lot of boats with tarps on them.

    So that makes this search a combo of the NY prison escapees search and the Boston Marathon bombing search. Lovely.
