Railroad police officer shoots one armed robber while the other is in custody
One man was in custody and a second man airlifted to a Chicago hospital this afternoon after they allegedly tried to hold up an off-duty railroad police officer in Dolton.
Dolton Deputy Police Chief Ronald Burge said the officer was exiting a vehicle at a condominium complex on the 14600 block of Greenwood Road around 1:30 p.m. when two men in their 20s approached him and asked for the time.
"He looked down (at his watch) and when he looked back up, they were brandishing a weapon," Burge said. The officer drew his weapon, shooting one of the men several times, Burge said.
