CHICAGO — It wasn't the first time someone pulled a weapon on Chicago Police Officer Del Pearson while he was performing a seemingly routine task.

In June 2007, Pearson fatally shot a man who pointed a gun at him as the man fled from a traffic stop. Pearson was awarded the Superintendent's Award of Valor.
