Here we go again. Gun violence is a daily occurrence in Chicagoland. This one is a bit unique. Authorities said a citizen who had a concealed carry permit shot at the person suspected of shooting at a Cicero police officer on Thursday. A Cicero officer in his 30s, who officials said is a four or five-year veteran of the force, was shot multiple times around 5 p.m. Thursday near the Cicero Avenue entrance ramp on I-55 on the border of Chicago and Cicero. During a press conference, Cicero Police Superintendent Jerry Chlada said officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle near 3900 South Cicero Avenue. The car refused to stop and officers were able to box him in at the entrance ramp. Chlada said the subject exited the vehicle and shot multiple rounds, striking an officer multiple times. The officer was hit twice in the arm, once in the leg and once in the stomach, according to officials.
