A police officer who was shot Tuesday morning has died, Fox News confirmed, and a community an hour north of Chicago was on lockdown as a massive manhunt for three armed and dangerous suspects continued
Helicopters were circling above Fox Lake, Ill., and every law enforcement agency from the area, along with a regional SWAT team and K-9 units were hunting for three suspects after the police officer was shot and killed around 8 a.m. local time.
The area being searched by police, in the northeastern portion of the state, was described as wooded and rural. The three suspects were involved in a traffic stop with the officer earlier Tuesday. Two male suspects are white and one is black, according to Lake County Sheriff's Det. Chris Covelli.
