Manhunt Continues Day After Ill. Officer Fatally Shot

A massive manhunt for three armed men who fatally shot a police officer in far north suburban Fox Lake, Illinois, continued Wednesday, nearly 24 hours after the shooting. Authorities say search crews will continue around the clock to find the suspects who are believed to be responsible for the killing of Lieutenant Charles "Joe" Gliniewicz, a 30-year-veteran of the police force. "Search teams will work 24/7 to apprehend [the suspects]," said Joe Ahern, CEO of the 100 Club of Chicago, late Tuesday. In addition to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Fox Lake Police Department, search teams include numerous local law enforcement officers from northern Illinois, Illinois State Police, and federal agencies, according to officials. Multiple local and federal SWAT Teams, 48 canine units, and six air support units were also dispatched for more than 14 hours Tuesday. Read »
