But Jerry Waller wasn’t gunned down by murderous thieves.
He was shot “multiple times” in his garage by at least one of two officers sent to the neighborhood to check on a burglar alarm.
Officers said that when they encountered Waller, he had a gun, but they haven't said much else.
They won’t speculate publicly on what happened until their investigation is complete. Hence, Halstead’s plea for patience.
Waller’s family, meanwhile, wants an independent agency to investigate.
