The gunfire proved fatal for French and left the male officer in critical condition.There were three suspects in the car from which the gunfire came: two males and a female. CNN notes that all three suspects are in custody. Mayor Lightfoot reacted to the attack on the officer by tweeting:

A violent and vulgar culture, which always blames everything and everybody else. Guns don't go off by themselves. Weren't Black hands pulling the triggers on those guns? Aren't there supposed to be no guns in Chicongo? Why haven't you rounded up all those illegal guns? Why haven't you cracked down on, arrested and prosected gang thugs? Oh, you defunded the police, did you? Racist Mayor Lightfoot has blood all over her hands.

It's NOT the guns you stupid ditz, it's the people with no thought about others or morals... states that to date the homicide count is 493 and 379 of those victims were black.....and car jackings are at 758...

It’s common knowledge that criminals in the big Democrat run cities do not obey gun control laws. So Biden and the leftist Democrats have the answer, pass new gun control laws that are designed to take all modern defensive firearms from the law abiding farmers and ranchers who reside in rural places like Montana, Nebraska, and Texas.

Big cities have always been dangerous but it wasn't until 2020 that the Democrats and media signaled it was open season on the police. Dems encouraged the BLM riots, they promoted 'defund the police', they declared the police, not guns, are the enemy.

Senator Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) was challenged recently by a caller on the “Jay Thomas Show.” The caller asked Cramer to reveal the identity of the Capitol Police officer who shot and killed unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, on January 6. Cramer claimed he did not know the name of the officer, nor did he believe the public had any right to know that officer’s name because he had not been found guilty of any wrongdoing. Such pandering to the ruling class and its railroaded investigation is embarrassing enough, as the available evidence (to say nothing of the evidence that the government refuses to release) indicates that the officer recklessly—
