One of two Illinois police officers shot Wednesday after they responded to a call about dogs barking in a hotel parking lot has died, the Bradley Police Department said in a news release.
A second officer is in critical condition and was undergoing surgery, the police department said. The names of the officers have not been released.
Officers responded to a Comfort Inn after a report of “dogs barking in an unattended vehicle which was parked in the parking lot,” a news release from Bradley Police said.
The release said officers went to the room where the possible owner of the vehicle was staying, and officers were attacked while officers were talking to people in the room.
Police said they were looking for least two people. An arrest warrant has been issued for a Darius D. Sullivan, in connection with the case, the news release said. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information.
Bradley is about 60 miles south of Chicago and about 125 miles west of North Manchester.
