Police Officer Alex Valadez was shot and killed while investigating reports of gunfire in the 6000 block of South Hermitage Road shortly after midnight.

As he and his partner were questioning several residents, a vehicle drove up and two occupants opened fire, striking Officer Valadez once in the leg and once in the head.

He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds later in the day.

In October 2011, one of the men who shot Officer Valadez was convicted of murder and attempted murder. He was subsequently sentenced to 125 years in prison. The two other subjects were both convicted of murder and attempted murder in October 2013.

Officer Valadez had served with the Chicago Police Department for three years. He is survived by his parents, sister, brother, and expectant girlfriend. His siblings and girlfriend also serve with the Chicago Police Department.
