Off-duty Chicago police officer shot and killed

Michael Bailey is the third officer to be shot and killed in Chicago since May

The Asssociated Press

CHICAGO — Chicago officials say an off-duty police officer killed outside his home was less than a month from retiring.

Officer Michael Bailey was shot about 6 a.m. Sunday on the city's South Side. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Officials say Bailey had returned home from working an overnight shift and was cleaning his new car. They say several people approached him and may have tried to steal the vehicle. No arrests have been made.

Next month, Bailey would have turned 63, the mandatory retirement age for Chicago police.

Bailey is the third officer to be shot and killed in Chicago since May.
