CHICAGO — Chicago's top cop issued a statement saying "charges are not anticipated in the immediate future'' in the shooting death of off-duty Chicago Police officer Michael Bailey.

The statement from Police Supt. Garry McCarthy's office was sent to media outlets Friday after a Sun-Times report detailing complaints from police officers and others who say charges have been delayed against a suspect - a 24-year-old prison inmate - because Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez is traveling to Hawaii.
