Police Officer Clifton Lewis was shot and killed while attempting to take action during a robbery at a grocery store on North Austin Boulevard.

He was working an overtime security detail at the store, which had been robbed several weeks earlier, when three male subjects entered at about 8:30 pm. One of the men shot Officer Lewis multiple times before grabbing his service weapon and badge and fleeing the store.

Officer Lewis was transported to Stroger Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. Two suspects were arrested and charged in connection with Officer Lewis' murder. On November 24, 2013, the third suspect was arrested and charged with first degree murder.

Officer Lewis had served with the Chicago Police Department for eight years and was assigned to the 15th District's Tactical Team. He is survived by his daughter, mother, and fiancee.

I just wanted to say that I think about you around this time every year. I remember receiving the call that night and I remember thinking it couldn't be true. Unfortunately for every person who knew you, it was. I know for a fact you are in heaven and watching over every brother and sister you have on this department. May you rest in peace Cliff and God willing I will see you again when God calls me home.
