3 Teens Arrested, Questioned In Officer's Killing

CBS 2 Chicago:
Just hours after the funeral for slain off-duty Chicago Police Officer Michael R. Bailey, three South Side teenagers were arrested on suspicion they were involved in his murder Sunday outside the officer's Park Manor home on the South Side.

Bailey, 62, who faced mandatory retirement next month, was shot in an apparent robbery attempt about 6:30 a.m. July 18 outside his home in the 7400 block of South Evans while he was polishing his new Buick Regal, which he had bought himself as a retirement gift.

The 20-year veteran officer was assigned to the Central District, which encompasses the Loop and he had just finished an overnight shift guarding the mayor's home, officials said.

The three males, 16, 17 and 18, were all placed in custody at Calumet Area headquarters, 727 E. 111th St., late Friday afternoon on the suspicion they had some involvement in the officer's death, according to police.

As of 4 a.m. Saturday no charges have been filed for any of the three South Side teens.
