Police shot a man who they say fled with a gun after officers attempted to pull him over on the West Side on Saturday evening.

The shooting happened about 5:30 p.m. in the 600 block of North Central Park Avenue, according to Tom Ahern, a Chicago police spokesman.

Officers had attempted to pull over a vehicle that had committed a traffic violation, but the driver evaded officers, Deputy Chief Ron Pontecore said at a press briefing. Officers came across the car again as it pulled into a garage, he added.

Officers then saw the driver exit the car with a gun in his hand, Pontecore said. The driver did not drop the gun as police demanded and instead ascended a back porch behind a home, he added.

Update Police identify intruder killed by Fairfax Co. homeowner

Authorities in Fairfax County, Virginia, have identified a man fatally shot in what detectives continue to believe was an act of self-defense by a homeowner.

Twenty-four-year-old Eduardo Santos, a Herndon resident, died Wednesday evening after being shot in an Oakton residence, the Fairfax County Police Department said in a news release.

Detectives determined a homeowner in the 11400 block of Waples Mill Road noticed Santos on his property around 6 p.m. Wednesday and asked him to leave. Santos is then said to have assaulted the homeowner with a stick, and made it several feet inside the house with “a large landscaping rock” before the homeowner retrieved a gun and opened fire.

Officers responding to the scene found Santos suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No Score

I’ll not speculate on Mr. Santos’ legal or mental condition, but I am glad for the homeowner’s ability to defend him and his. Point- this occurred in proggy Herndon, of gated communities and the Virginia horsey set. All that virtue signaling gone to waste.

Chiraq, not just the South Side that’s the baddest part of town. Mostly peaceful protests in 5.4.3…

“Sticks and stones will break your bones, but gunshot wounds will kill you.”

George Orwell set out to write a scary novel, not a “How To” book.

I <LIKE> the theme ya got going. My double trigger .50 Hawken, like the one pictured, ended up hanging over the fireplace at Brother’s Place in the Black Hills of Dakota. Just seemed to be the best place for it. He does take it out now again for “Shoot n Tell”.

This place has an excellent display of “Mountain Man” weapons and artifacts. Well worth a visit.

Don’t stick to using a stick in a gunfight or the homeowner will stick it to you with a couple of rounds of lead. Same thing goes for rocks or the homeowner will rock you over on your heels with a couple of rounds of lead. Speaking of rocks.
Q-Who were the NYC 1950’s guys called Rocks
A- They were the teens who wore leather bike jackets, engineer boots and DA hair cuts, dungaree pants with a garrison belt buckle turned to one side of the waist and a white T Shirt. Some of the belt buckles were sharpened to use in a rumble. Zippo modified their lighters so a car aerial couldnt be used as a gun barrel in the lighter. We called them Rocks where I lived.


That Hawkins may be ‘old technology’ but it is still better than a stick, landscape rock, knife, BB gun, etc. in the case of a gunfight – and will put a rather large hole in the perp in the process.
