CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A Chicago Police officer survived a brush with death Friday afternoon when a bullet struck his safety vest during a shootout that left a female gunman critically wounded on the West Side, officials said.
“Thankfully he had a vest on and it saved his life. The shot was to the center of his mass and could have been fatal,” said Dr. Kristen Donaldson, who treated the officer at Loyola University Medical Center.
