A Chicago thief picked the wrong woman to harass and got shot dead by an off-duty police officer. Surveillance footage was just released by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability which is investigating the shooting. (See Video Below)
The video shows Leevon Smith arguing with a group of people in the 1300 block of West 90th Street just around 1 p.m. on Jan. 18 after robbing one of them. An off-duty officer eventually leaves an apartment building and tries to defuse the situation.
But Smith kept pushing and despite a warning from the cop that she would shoot him he kept it up, he kept at it. So she opened fired and dropped the thug. An off-duty Chicago cop can be heard shouting “I’ll kill you” as the man grabs for her gun. She repeats the warning multiple times before dropping the man for good.
“Didn’t I just say I’d kill you?” the officer. “Didn’t I just say I’d kill you?”
“I’ll kill you,” the officer yells before opening fire.
“You got me. You got me,” Smith says.
“I told your dumba** I’d kill you,” the officer says.
“Baby, I’m sorry,” Smith says “I’m sorry.
“I don’t want to die.”
The officer yells for someone to call the police.
“I told your dumba** I’d shoot you,” the officer says. “You tried to steal my f*ck-ing gun.
I don’t give no f*ck about him. He just tried to rob me.”
When an emergency crew pulls up, one of them asks her, “Where’d you hit him?”
“I don’t know,” the officer says.
“I’m trying to call my bosses, but ain’t no one answering for me,” she said.
“F*ck it, I can’t believe this just happened to me,” she said before telling first responders she is a cop and Smith tried to steal her “off-duty gun.”
According to The Chicago Sun-Times:
A tactical response report states that Smith posed an “imminent threat of battery” without a weapon and physically attacked the officer. It also claims she was ambushed with “no warning” and fired a total of three shots.
A 911 call released by COPA appears to capture the initial interaction between Smith and the group of people before the shooting.
“Just give me my bag back, bro,” someone is heard saying during an argument captured on the call.
In another call, someone else tells a dispatcher that a person was being held for police after he tried to rob a woman. The shooting is then reported in separate 911 calls, one of which references a prior fight in the area.
“There’s a lady outside with a gun, and she shot somebody. … She’s going inside with the gun,” one caller said.
…A day before Smith died, Cook County prosecutors approved felony charges against him, the arrest report shows. He faced counts of attempted robbery and aggravated battery, but the charges don’t appear in county court records.
