Investigator Cuauhtemoc Estrada was shot and killed while intervening in a robbery, near the intersection of 30th Street and St. Charles Road in Bellwood, while off duty.

Investigator Estrada was attending a Christmas party at the VFW hall when he stepped outside and observed an armed robbery taking place in the parking. He identified himself and was reaching for his service weapon when he was shot once in the chest.

He was transported to Loyola University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Two suspects in connection with Investigator Estrada's murder were apprehended two days later.

Investigator Estrada was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Cook County Sheriff's Office for 20 years.
