Po-po in Illinois said an officer was doing a traffic stop when an unrelated vehicle pulled up next to that officer, the driver got out of his car and charged at him with an hatchet.
Here’s a picture from the body cam footage release by police.
"A man quickly exited the vehicle and charged at the officer with a hatchet in his hand," Naperville Police Chief Jason Arres said…
The officer fired his gun and hit the suspect, who was described by police as a white male in his 20s. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police are trying to determine whether the man who allegedly attacked the officer was somehow related to the person in the car they stopped.
The officer, a 22-year veteran of the Naperville police department, was not injured in the incident, police said."
