A retired Chicago police sergeant was shot in a home invasion in the far South Side overnight. Two suspects are at large.
Authorities said 73-year-old Elmer Brown was inside his home at 115th Street and Avenue G when two men entered the home through an unlocked door.
They asked him about a safe. He told them where the safe was but the suspects shot him anyway.
His wife was home with him at the time but not wounded in the attack. Brown’s caregiver, Eva Luna, said “he’s very ill. He has his medical conditions.” She added: “He needs 24 hour guidance.”
Brown was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition with a neck wound.
