Veteran Chicago Police Officer Nathaniel Taylor Jr. was killed on Sunday when he was struck by a felon's bullet during a search warrant of a suspected drug offender's home.
While police waited outside of the home for the suspect to come out, which is typically safer than approaching the home, the suspect drove up in a vehicle. Officer Taylor announced that they were the police and the suspect fired upon him.
Officers on the scene returned fire, leaving the suspect, Lamar Cooper, 37, in critical condition at a local hospital. Drugs, weapons and a bulletproof vest were located inside of the suspect's home, which was equipped with six security cameras.
