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 two 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. The two suspects were arrested and charged in connection with Officer Lewis' 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 am retired after 41 years, I worked forensic services and had to handle 3 officer involved killings. I am from the old school where we wear the same badge, I don't care race, beliefs or age, all are my brothers and sisters not only on the job but in God's teaching. There has not been one of these I worked I didn't cry like a baby, and pray for special passage for my brother. My heart is heavy for your loss then and now. God Bless
