CHICAGO (CBS) — Police on Monday released surveillance video of the suspects who shot and killed retired Chicago Fire Lt. Dwain Williams during an attempted carjacking in Morgan Park last week.
Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan played the video at a news conference Monday.
Around 2 p.m. Thursday, Williams, 65, was leaving the Let’s Get Poppin popcorn store at 11758 S. Western Ave. and was walking to his vehicle, when a four-door dark-colored sedan pulled up and four men got out and bum rushed him, according to Chicago Police Chief of Operations Brian McDermott.
The carjackers fired at Williams, and Williams returned fire. Police initially did not have a good look at the assailants, but the new video shows them storming out of another car as Williams walks up to his own.
An exchange of gunfire follows.
Three of the suspects are shown on the video, while the fourth was behind the wheel of the other stolen car, Deenihan said.
