In Chicago on May 16, Shotspotter heard gunfire. The cops saw a man walking down the street carrying a handgun. Two officers walked behind him for several minutes calling to him to drop the gun.
Then another patrol car arrived in front of the walker. Then this happened:
Incredible video shows how quickly an armed confrontation can go south. Two @Chicago_Police officers, including the one who's wearing the camera that filmed this video, were shot. So was the gunman. All survived.— CWBChicago (@CWBChicago) June 9, 2021

The shooter’s name is Bruce Lua, 45.
He may not be black, so he’s unlikely to become another BLM martyr.
