Four Suspects Charged In The Murder Of Police Officer Areanah Preston


Four teenagers are facing a charge of murder in the death of a 24-year-old Chicago police officer.

Officer Areanah Preston had just gotten off of work and was in her uniform when she was fatally shot, close to 1:45 a.m., on Saturday.

The four suspects, ages 19, 19, 18, and 16, are said to have been looking for someone that they could victimize. It is reported that they had already committed several robberies just prior to killing Preston.

While Preston was arriving home, the suspects pulled up in a stolen vehicle and began shooting at her.

Preston shot back as the suspects continued to shoot at her. They are accused of taking her gun before leaving the scene.

Authorities have not found that weapon.

All four suspects have been charged with first-degree murder and other offenses, such as robbery and arson.

The 16-year-old will be charged as an adult.
