Retired officer dies from injuries suffered in home invasion

A retired Chicago police sergeant, who was shot during a home invasion earlier this month, has died.

Elmer Brown was 73 and served as a policeman for 38 years.

He was legally blind and suffered from diabetes.

Two men broke into his home on March 10th and shot Brown in the neck after demanding to know about a safe in the home.

Brown died early Monday at Advocate Christ Medical Center.

Police have not made any arrests.

His family is urging anyone with information to call police.

His wife said Brown “was a wonderful father and husband.”
