REPORT: 2 young Chicago police officers hit and killed by train


Two Chicago police officers were killed Monday night when they were hit by a train while investigating a call of shots fired on the city’s Far South Side.

Officers Eduardo Marmolejo, 36, and Conrad Gary, 31, were killed in the line of duty while responding to a call for service on the railroad tracks. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said both men were fathers of young kids. Marmolejo had two and a half years on the force, and Gary had 18 months, police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

The article goes on to state the following:

The officers were doing surveillance following a ShotSpotter report when they were hit by an outbound South Shore train at the 103rd Street Rosemoor stop near 103rd Street and Dauphin Avenue around 6:20 p.m.

“These brave young men were consumed with identifying a potential threat,” Johnson told reporters at a news conference held late Monday at the Police Department’s South Side headquarters.
