Chicago Officers Credited with Saving Wounded Baby's Life After Shooting

October 01, 2015  | 

Two Chicago police officers arrived to Monday night's chaotic quintuple shooting scene in the Back of the Yards neighborhood and were immediately met by a woman carrying a wounded baby.

The baby, 11-month-old Princeton Chew, was losing a lot of blood. No ambulances were in sight.

The Deering District officers, John Conneely and Michael Modzelewski, were left with no choice but to go against department protocol -- and drive Princeton to the hospital on their own, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Princeton was one of five people shot following a family outing a little after 7 p.m. Monday near 53rd and Aberdeen streets in the South Side's Back of the Yards neighborhood. The boy's mother and grandmother were killed in the shooting.

At a news conference Tuesday, Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy praised the two officers for their split-second decision not to wait for an ambulance, which is credited with saving the baby's life.

Good job officers. Where is the national media report for the life saving efforts of these officers?
