CHICAGO — Police in Chicago are asking for the public’s help to find the person who shot an off-duty police officer to death.

Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis (WEES) says the slain officer was a 15-year veteran of the police force who was currently assigned to the SWAT team. The officer was found shot to death inside his SUV on the city’s southwest side Monday night.

Weis says the officer’s name isn’t being released, pending notification of family.

Weis says detectives are investigating the shooting. Police rushed to the scene after a caller reported hearing eight shots fired shortly after 6:30 p.m. and saw someone running away from the area.
