Felon Shoots 2 Chicago Police Officers Out Of Nowhere

One of the tools used by Chicago police officers is ShotSpotter. The technology allows them to identify and locate a gunshot with accuracy, so law enforcement can coordinate a timely response and reduce violence.

Gunshot Alert

On May 16 around 7 a.m., Chicago police got an alert via ShotSpotter on the 1400-block of South Lawndale Avenue. Multiple Chicago Police Department officers responded to the call.

In recently released bodycam footage, you can see officers attempt to make contact with the suspect, who walks away from the officers. The suspect was identified as Bruce Lua, 45.

Refusal To Stop

In the footage you here an officer say, "Hey buddy, just drop it, man!! Hey! Stop right there! Show me your hands!"

Lua did not respond to officers and kept walking. He continued to ignore them walking into an alleyway. Officers continued to follow him.

“We can get you some help, man. Drop it, man. All’s you gotta do is just drop it. We’re here to help you, man. Drop the gun.”

Still, Lua would not quit walking, nor would he talk to the officers. He continued into an alley that ran behind the 1500-block of South Lawndale Avenue, until a patrol car blocked his path.

Attempting to Stop the Suspect

The two officers got out of the vehicle ordering him to show them his hands. 'Why?" was Lua's response as he pulled out his gun and shot them both.

As soon as Lua shot at the two officers, multiple officers fired back at him, hitting him. In the video, you can hear Lua say, "They shoot me!" One of the officers responds, "You shot at us." Lua was shot in the leg and will recover.

Lua is charged with aggravated battery, attempted murder, and unlawful use of a weapon. According to prosecutors, a 28-year-old officer was shot in the hip and the shoulder, while a 26-year-old officer was hit in the hand.

The two officers went to the hospital for treatment and went home the same day. When Lua shot the officers, he was waiting for his trial on a misdemeanor assault charge, which he was out on bail for $10,000. His bond is now set at $10 million.

Lua could have avoided the additional charges and the gunshot wound if he had responded to the officers requests to stop and put up his hands. Instead, he chose to shoot at the officers, which led to the other officers return fire.

    1. He shot 2 police officers in the line of duty why is this man still breathing? He would do it again and again.

  1. Putting him to room temperature would have saved a lot of money and eliminated a continuing problem permanently.

  2. Why is it that when a black criminal is shot by a white cop they print the race of each, but when a black cirminal shoots cops, the race isn't mentioned.?

    1. It's because "everyone knows" white officers intentionally hunt for unarmed black men they can gun down. Imagine their surprise when one of them turns out to be armed & shoots back! (ICYMI, heavy sarcasm)

  3. should of spent the .39 cents.....oh wait now its a $1.00 and put him down. Save the tax payers some money.

  4. The liberal news media will either ignore this story completely or, if they do report it, they will change the facts and have Lua looking like Jesus and the officers like demons from hell.

  5. Wish the leftist Main Stream Media (MSM) and groups like BLM would back up their claims with FACTS before claiming Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) kill hundreds of black people every week or month.

    Go to http://www.statista.com and check out the true numbers: less than 250 blacks were shot to death each year by LEOs from 2017 to 2020. Several hundred per year, NOT by week or even month.

    In 2020, there were a reported 241 blacks were shot and killed by LEOs, almost all of whom failed to follow the LEOs instructions to STOP, DON'T RUN, RAISE YOUR HANDS, etc.

    BTW, in 2020 alone, 264 LEOs were shot and killed while doing their jobs. But you don't hear those stats by the MSM, nor by those advocating de-funding of the police.

  6. Agree with David. Although adrenalin does play a part, that scroat should not still be sucking air.


  8. This is Bidens America complete lawlessness. God bless the officers i hope there all ok this has got to stop ! There is no respect for lawinforcement anymore because of the Democrats defend the police campaign
    We as Americans have to demand this trend stops . These officers gave him every chance to drop it and ended up getting shot for it .
