The sergeant marks the 13th officer shot or shot at so far this year. 79 CPD officers who were shot/shot at in all of 2020. God bless the men and women of the Chicago Police Department and all officers throughout our country who risk their lives for our safety each and every day.— Chicago Police Superintendent David O.
