Agency will probe Ill. police shooting of suspect at day care center


Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Cook County investigators and U.S. Justice Department mediators have headed to Rockford in a bid to restore public confidence after the recent fatal shooting of a 23-year-old man by two Rockford police officers.

In what could be a watershed moment for how the city handles such cases, the Cook County Public Integrity Task Force -- made up of Illinois State Police and Cook County state's attorney's office investigators -- is looking into the Aug. 24 death of Mark Anthony Barmore.
