Suspect in triple shooting charged with attempted murder of Chicago police captain
CHICAGO, Ill. (Oct. 9, 2014)– An Indianapolis triple shooting suspect now faces charges after a violent standoff with police that injured a Chicago police captain.
On Tuesday, police tracked Daniel Brown to his sister’s apartment in Englewood in a semi tractor-trailer he had stolen from a south side Marion County truck yard Sunday – the day after he allegedly shot three people in Indianapolis.
At approximately 5:30 pm Tuesday, Chicago police were attempting to apprehend Brown when he allegedly began shooting from the window of a residence in the 7200 block of S. Lowe in Englewood.
As a result, Chicago Police Capt. Edward Kulbida sustained a gunshot wound and was transported to the hospital.
Police say Brown may be responsible for the death of his sister’s boyfriend, Daniel Jackson, who was found dead inside the home.
At approximately 11:40 p.m. Tuesday, Daniel Brown was taken into custody.
Kulbida, 58, is a 29-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department. Kulbida has recently been released from the hospital and is recovering.
Chicago police announced Thursday that Brown is charged with:
- Two counts – attempted murder
- First degree murder
- Aggravated battery
- Being a fugitive from justice
