VIDEO: Illinois Officer Critically Wounded Investigating Break-In

A Park Forest, IL police officer was critically wounded in a shooting that left a break-in suspect  dead early Saturday morning, police said.

Park Forest Police were investigating a break-in at a vacant home and a stolen vehicle found at the location in the 300 block of Neola Street at approximately in 5:40 a.m., reports CBS Chicago.

After learning a person was inside the building, police set up a perimeter around the home. As the suspect left, police say they tried to take him into custody, and he produced a handgun and started shooting at the officers.

Police returned fire, striking and killing the suspect. Officer Tim Jones, 24, received life-threatening injuries. Jones was shot multiple times, at least once in the head, and was hospitalized in critical condition. He was reportedly "doing better" after surgery, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The officer is the son of Country Club Hills Police Chief William Jones.

Authorities identified the suspect as 21-year-old Thurman Reynolds. Police say they found two guns on him.

The Illinois State Police Public Integrity Task Force is investigating the shooting.

"Blue lives" don't seem to matter, "its part of the job". Sadly thats how many feel. God be with this officer.
