Chi-Raq: Chicago Judge Murdered In Front Of Home
Things just don't get better for one of our best major cities.
Chicago finds itself in the news once again for an act of violence.
This time, a judge was confronted in front of his house at 5 a.m. and killed at point blank range.
Cook County Judge Raymond Myles, 66, died after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds from a still-at-large suspect just before 5 a.m., Chicago police said in a press conference Monday.A woman, whom authorities called “a close associate of the judge,” was shot once in the leg and suffered a non-life threatening injury. Multiple news outlets reported her age as 52.Myles and his friend had likely been preparing to embark on their regular early-morning workout, Chief of Detectives Melissa Staples said. The woman exited Myles’ residence and encountered a man with a gun; after the two exchanged words, the assailant shot her — prompting Myles to investigate the commotion outside.“Based off of this very preliminary information, he exchanged words with the offender before he was fatally shot multiple times,” Staples said.The injured woman managed to phone 911. The suspect, who did not appear to have stolen any property, fled on foot. -(NY Daily News)
