COOLER HEADS: "Suicide By Cop" Fails Near Montrose Beach

A man was safely taken into custody early Friday after he attempted "suicide by cop" near Montrose Beach.

19th district officers responded to the area of Wilson and Simonds Drive around 3AM after a juvenile reported that his uncle was armed with a knife and had slit his own wrists.

Officers immediately called for back-up after the uncle, bleeding from his arms, tried to force the officers to shoot him. He did not succeed.

After a few tense minutes, officers stunned the man with a Taser and secured him for a ride to Weiss Hospital where he was listed in good condition.

  1. Thankful for the "cooler heads." Good job, CPD!!!

    At this point in time, I can only imagine the mainstream outrage if our officers had reacted in a fashion other than they did. Again, good job officers!!!

  2. No idea if this is intentional as previously .. or accidental, but head's up:

    Garages go up in flames in Lakeview, no injuries

    Thanks for ALL your great work, CWB!
