A person has been found shot at the Thompson Center in Chicago’s Loop Tuesday afternoon.
The person was found inside of a stairwell and was immediately taken to the hospital in critical condition. The Thompson Center houses multiple offices for the State of Illinois and was formerly known as the State of Illinois Center.
The officer has reportedly passed away at the hospital. He was shot twice in the head. His identity has not been released, but reports indicate that he was a high-ranking member of the law enforcement who was trying to break up a gun deal.
