A member of the Chicago Police Department’s SWAT team sent out an email to officers Monday, reporting that the department has received threats of violence from gang members.
The subject line said: “FYI–Officer safety.” The email goes on to say “per area two detectives, phone calls were received in both the 3rd and 6th Districts in which the caller stated ‘More police will be shot. Gangbangers in the area are passing the word. Every night they will be ambushing police in the Chatham area.'”
