ATF Agent Expected To Survive

(Chicago, IL) – A federal agent in Chicago is expected to survive a gunshot wound to the face. The ATF agent was shot while working undercover on a joint mission with the Chicago Police Department.

He was rushed to the hospital by fellow task force members because they didn’t want to wait for an ambulance. When the agent arrived at the hospital, he was in critical condition.

The shooting happened during an investigation of illegal guns and a massive manhunt is underway for the suspect.

Manhunt Continues For Cop Killers

(CNN) – Police may soon have “significant” evidence to announce in this week’s killing of an Illinois police officer, including footage from a home security video system in the area of the shooting, an official said Thursday.

Gliniewicz was an Army veteran who served in active duty and reserve from 1980 to 2007.

Any video in the area could help authorities determine who shot and killed Fox Lake police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz on Tuesday morning. Until now, police have described the suspects only as two white men and a black man — descriptions of people that Gliniewicz had indicated he’d encountered shortly before the shooting.

A homeowner in Fox Lake, a community of about 10,000 people in northern Illinois, turned over his surveillance video after telling police that he saw people in the area, Lake County Major Crime Task Force commander George Filenko said Thursday.

Local investigators don’t have the proper equipment to see the recording, so the footage was given to a nearby Department of Homeland Security office, and police hope to learn what it shows soon.

“We have retrieved … what we believe to be some significant video,” Filenko said. “Until we review it, we’re not confirming whether these are the same people that we’re talking about.”

Filenko didn’t say when the video was recorded or reveal how the homeowner described the individuals.

Meanwhile, a source involved in the investigation told CNN on Thursday that Gliniewicz’s gun was fired on the morning, though it’s not clear who discharged the weapon.

The gun was recovered at the crime scene, the source said on condition of anonymity.

It’s not clear how Gliniewicz’s gun figures into the killing. Police have declined to answer questions about whose gun was used to kill him.

The last day of work

Gliniewicz was on his way to work Tuesday morning, in the cruiser that he had taken home the day before, when he saw three suspicious people, Filenko said earlier this week.
