View Full Version : Follow-up on Cook County, IL...

You recently posted the following in another thread...

If you run into the next incarnation of the guy in Cook County, IL who took 33 9mm bullets AND a 12 gauge slug and was still on his feet trying to kill cops until one more rifled slug took him down for the count...well, you keep shooting until the threat is over.

I was unable to find any solid information on the incident other than a post on a different messageboard asking about the incident, and stating it was in 1968. That post mentioned that the suspect was shot with 9mm soft-points. Was this the same incident you were referring to? If so, do you have a good source for further information on the incident, or similar incidents with more modern ammo?

Thanks in advance.

My understanding is that the ammo in that case was the old Winchester 100 grain "Power Point" soft nose 9mm. An autopsy photo of the perp taken by Alan Kulovitz appears in the Calibre Press textbook "Street Survival."
