Heartbreaking reports coming in from Illinois have gone on to reveal how a suspected gunman shot a pleading female cop dead using her own weapon.
According to local media outlets, the suspect is accused of taking the officer’s life last week, despite her desperate pleas to spare her life.
The gunman used the cop’s own weapon to carry out the fatal shooting, right after he ignored her cries for help as revealed by prosecutors recently.
Meanwhile, the state attorney of Kankakee County has gone on to reveal more harrowing details about the tragic case and that includes how the situation unfolded in the first place.
In the same way, the state attorney is also moving forward with a push for the death penalty for the accused shooter and his accomplice during the hotel shooting that took place on December 29th, leaving officer Marlene Rittmanic dead and her partner critically wounded in the act.
The accused gunman was identified as 25-year-old Darius Sullivan who tried to take his own life by shooting himself in the head in a room located at Comfort Inn. And that’s when he all of a sudden opened fire at Rittmanic who got hit as she made attempts to run away.
The suspect chased the officer down the hallway and then disarmed her as she tried to take out her weapon and unjam it, stated prosecutors during a recent court appearance, as revealed by the Chicago Sun-Times.
On the other hand, the suspect’s 26-year-old friend Xandria Harris tried to join in and get the officer’s gun too. The duo stood over the wounded officer’s head with guns pointing towards her as she desperately pleaded for her life.
And that’s when the accused Sullivan fired two more rounds of shots from the officer’s weapon, as revealed by the Associated Press.
