DYER, Ind. (AP) An Indiana prosecutor says no expenses will probably be filed towards officers within the deadly capturing of a suspected automotive thief following a police chase in south suburban Chicago.
Lake County Prosecutor Bernard Carter introduced Thursday that the 4 Indiana officers acted in self-protection. Indiana State Police dealt with the assessment of the Aug. 10 capturing of 33-yr-previous Mark P. Coffey of Chicago Heights, Illinois.
The chase started in Crete, Illinois, and crossed into Indiana earlier than going again into Illinois. Coffey hit a pedestrian and the chase stopped.
Shortly afterward, Coffey crossed again into Indiana and encountered the Indiana officers a number of blocks east of the Indiana-Illinois state line close to a fuel station in Dyer, the place he was shot.
Police say Coffey confronted an arrest warrant for battery and theft.
