CHICAGO – An off-duty Chicago police officer shot and killed a man late Saturday night after a deadly confrontation ensued when the cop struck the man’s daughter with his motorcycle.
The officer was heading home Saturday through the town of Maywood when his bike hit 4-year oldTaniyah Middleton. When the girl’s father Christopher, 26, confronted the officer over the incident, the officer shot and killed him.
Friends of the late father remembered him Sunday as a “helpful” and “happy” man.
“Chris was a great father,” Middleton’s cousin Mathis Hoskin told ABC’s Chicago affiliate WLS. “He was always helpful, never mad – always happy with a smile on his face.”
