Chicago police shoot suspect in security officer stabbing www.privateofficer.com
It happened at the intersection of LaSalle and Monroe around 2 a.m. Saturday.
The incident began when the driver of a black Maxima headed southbound on LaSalle Street rear-ended a silver car, causing the silver car to spin out.
The Maxima then crashed into a pole, and witnesses say the driver jumped out wielding a large knife and tried to attack the other driver.
When a private security guard approached the vehicles, the man stabbed her.
A police sergeant responded to the scene, identified herself and ordered the man to drop the knife.
Witnesses say he tried to grab the officer’s gun, and she fired once, hitting him in the leg.
He was arrested.
Both the security guard and the offender were transported to nearby hospitals.
No other injuries were reported.
