A fugitive task force was met with gunfire in Chicago’s notorious Englewood neighborhood yesterday evening, wounding a decorated Chicago Police Captain. Police returned fire through the apartment’s door, wounding the fugitive and killing the fugitive’s sister’s boyfriend.
We wish Captain Ed Kulbida a speedy recovery and all the best.
As for the fugitive, wanted for shooting three people, carjacking and theft from Indianapolis: we wish him plentiful beatdowns in prison, along with many romantic nights playing catch with Mongo.
From NBC Chicago:
A police standoff at an Englewood neighborhood apartment building ended Tuesday night with one man dead and another in custody several hours after a police captain was shot while trying to execute a warrant.
The standoff at the building in the 7200 block of South Lowe Avenue ended at about 11:30 p.m. Police police did not identify who was killed but neighbors said it was a man who lived in the home, adding that they don’t believe he fired any shots at police.
Capt. Ed Kulbida was shot at around 5:30 p.m. while helping U.S. Marshals serve an arrest warrant on Daniel Brown, wanted in connection with a triple shooting in Indiana over the weekend. Kulbida, 58, suffered gunshot wounds to his head and shoulder and was listed in stable condition at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. He was not expected to undergo surgery.
