Off Duty Deputy Uses Injured Gunman as Human Shield During Chicago Shooting

Federal security officers rescue woman who fell on subway tracks

Lopez, 29, was charged with attempted murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated assault of a peace officer. He has since bonded out of jail and is scheduled to appear in court next month.

A third man, 25-year-old Nathaniel Nunes, pleaded guilty to gun possession and reckless discharge of a firearm in connection with the incident. He was handed a four-year prison sentence.

Following the shooting, Raines was put on leave pending an investigation into the incident. He boarded a bus just before noon on Oct. 8, 2015 and its driver found him unresponsive at the end of her route, just after 1 p.m., according to the Tribune.

Records from the Cook County medical examiner’s office show that Raines suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia and neuropathy as well as an addiction to alcohol and heroin. He was still on leave at the time of his death.

The sheriff’s department Office of Professional Review conducted the internal investigation and determined that Raines’ actions were justified.
