CHICAGO — He earned the Chicago Police Department's highest award for bravery after gunning down the killer of fellow Chicago Police Officer Thor Soderberg — without wearing a bulletproof vest.

Chicago Police Sgt. Jason Kaczynski collapsed and suffered an apparent heart attack last week while serving a search warrant at 64th and Normal at a location where an AK-47 was recovered.
