On Monday night two police officers, Conrad Gary and Eduardo Marmolejo responded to a ‘shots fired’ call and were struck by a moving train in Chicago.

This started Monday night when the two officers responded to a ‘shots fired’ call on the south side of Chicago. They responded and were searching around the train tracks for the suspect. They found the suspect and confronted him and then he took off running. The officers then ran after him and were aware that there was a train northbound in the area. The officers were not aware of the was a train in the southbound area approaching where they were searching. They did not know that the train was approaching because the northbound train masked the sound of the southbound train. There was no indication that they saw the train before it struck the two men. The train hit the men at 60-70 mph and they died instantly. The suspect was caught and was taken into custody where they also recovered the gun.

The police department in Chicago is called the Fifth District and the police there say that is has been a very difficult year for these men and women working there. There has been tragedy after tragedy this year for the fifth department and they are still putting their lives out there on the south side of Chicago, but they won’t stop making Chicago a better city.

They just want prayers for the families of the loved ones who passed away after this accident and they told CNN, “The holidays will never be the same for the two families.”
