CHICAGO — Cook County prosecutors Tuesday dropped charges against a parolee accused of trying to kill two Chicago police officers on the West Side last month.
Physical evidence from the crime - as well as a new witness - excluded Daniel Jones, 27, as the gunman in the July 18 incident in which two plainclothes officers were shot in the head, a source said. They were treated at a hospital and released.
