    Default Police fatally wound armed robber after high-speed chase in Illinois

    This happened last week around my area. Well, about 2.5 hours south of me. I forgot to post it then. The pics taken by the news photog from the Bloomington-Normal Pantagraph are exceptional and should win a prize.

    NORMAL, Ill. — A man suspected of robbing four banks died several hours after being shot by police following a high-speed chase around Normal in central Illinois.

    Authorities say the man, identified by McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling as Robert Sylvester of Bloomington, robbed a Bloomington currency exchange at gunpoint on Monday and fled in his vehicle.

    Police began a pursuit around 3 p.m. on Interstate 55. Authorities said the chase reached speeds of more than 90 mph.

    Witnesses say the 57-year-old Sylvester jumped out of the vehicle near the Peoria exit onto I-74 just north of Normal Community West High School. They say the man leaped over a concrete barrier and showed a gun.

    That’s when the suspect and officers from several jurisdictions exchanged gunfire and he was shot.

    Police said Slyvester was taken to BroMenn Regional Medical Center where he died late Monday.

    McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling said in a statement Tuesday that preliminary autopsy results show Sylvester died from multiple gunshot wounds, including to the head and lower extremities. Forensic tests have been ordered, she said.












    This is just moments after he was shot

    The slogan for New Balance shoes in the 1980's was:

    "New Balance--We don't live by fashion. Then again, we don't die by it either."

    We have to use "fatally wounded" because Blagovich sold "was killed" to the highest bidder.

    Kind of like a piece I saw on the local news a while back...."The body was found with over two dozen stab wounds....police say foul play is suspected."

    Houston Police chased some teenager who "found" a pick up truck through a neighbourhood and the kid ended up running into some poor bastard getting out of his truck at home. The guy had just come back from the store buying party supplies for a birthday party.

    People are really miffed because it's not the first time HPD has done the whole "innocent bystanders killed during police chase" thing. Seems like high speed chases are the big thing right now....or maybe it's just that local news channels love following them so much with their nifty little whirly-birds.

    Seems like with all the technology that exists today, high speed chases wouldn't end in so many deaths.

    The cities in my area have done away with chases. Both Illinois and Iowa State Police still chase and a few counties still do. One city banned them altogether. Davenport only chases if it's a "high profile crime." Basically armed robbery, murder, etc.

    As for your comment on the larger metros; chases are HUGE ratings getters. People are addicted to them like crack. Any chance a new chopper can get a chase, it'll be aired.
