VIDEO: Graphic Footage Shows Shootout Between Chicago Police and Carjacker

Last week, the oversight agency for the Chicago Police Dept. released graphic footage of a 2020 shootout between officers and a suspected carjacker.

The perpetrator, identified as Lovelle Jordan, was being transported to a local station on the morning of July 30th for processing after officers arrested him in a stolen Porsche.  

Though bodycam footage shows them patting down Jordan and finding drugs in his pockets, the officers failed to discover the loaded pistol hidden near his groin area.

When the officers put Jordan in the back of the police car, handcuffed with his hands behind his back, he was somehow able to retrieve the firearm.

Officers opened up the door of the car at the station and that’s when Jordan began shooting. 

He hit one officer in the chin and the protective vest.  A second officer was shot in the hip and a third was struck in the protective vest.  

Jordan was also shot in the melee and was subsequently left paralyzed.  He was no stranger to law enforcement.  Jordan was a convicted felon.  

In April of this year, Jordan pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder and five counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, according to Fox32.  He was sentenced to 31 years in prison. 

But his stay in prison didn’t last long.  Several days after his sentencing he died there, the Illinois Department of Corrections confirmed.

    Glad the perp was taken in and that no LEOs passed as a result. But it seems like the Chi-Town LEOs need better marksmanship training. Their tactics generally seem to be ineffective.

    The dudes race doesnt matter. Crime is not exclusive to any one race. Buffalo???? No need to inject racist bigotry into this matter unless you want to unpack all the wars, mass murders, slaughters of innocents, etc at the hands of europeans and whites. This dude was clearly f’d up and thankfully he was apprehended. God handled the rest. And I’m not passive or Demo. I’m armed, but I think for the good of all.

    Stupid is what stupid does! The suspect got his but those cops need to go back to the academy for training. The suspect was purposely putting his stomach and groin down towards the ground in the hope that the cops would not search his waistband and crotch and they did not. They made rookie mistake 101 what a bunch of dumb#*%s, I guess they don’t want to go home after every shift and want to leave someone a nice benefits package if they keep that up. But pain is a great motivator to change your ways,,,lol.

    Very scary situation,but disappointed the cop who left his wounded partner laying under the car.

    “Chitcongo”…Bahahahahaha! Congrats Rex…you actually made me Laugh, which is a sight seldom seen! The comment about this Thug wearing “Support Stockings” is something that EVERY Cop in the US needs to put to memory. This, from what I’ve been told, means the Perp has a Concealed Carry Pistol in his Poop Shoot…the Stockings help Contain the weapon. There’s nothing worse then your Pistol Popping Out ‘da Holster at an Important Function! “Welcome to Chitcongo Your Majesty…OOOPS (firearm hitting the floor sounds)…” My word, what was that ‘POOT’ Sound?…”So Sorry My Lady, it was just my .357 Mag flying out my AZZ when I Bowed!” -Fungus Out

    Having been born and raised in Cook County, Illinois and having known some Chicago Cops,. I know they do not take too kindly to people who try to kill them! Go Figure!

    I am surprised that the scumbag who tried to kill them lived to tell about it? Of course, now you have to be concerned about the Rights of the Scumbag who is trying to kill you? Amazing!

  • SierraVictorRomeo May 20, 2022, 10:24 am

    Well, there it is! No tactics, No firearms qualifications, no control of the scene! 60 ROUNDS??? Cops shooting wildly, hitting other cops.
    Wonder why sh!t is out of control in the Windy City?

    • oldfuzz695 May 20, 2022, 11:06 am

      I have a different opinion. A few years ago, Atlanta was having a “peach drop” for New Years celebration. A bunch of black thugs were disorderly. pushing people around, etc. One lady, snowbird from Chicago stated: “Somehow I miss all those mean cops from Chicago, swinging billy clubs. “

    Why exactly do they need to “investigate” the shooting of a POS PERP, who draws down on Police, shoots one point blank, then returns fire! The Police Officers, from the first brave one who was shot, to the one who finally shot that POS, should all be given Commendations with letters of bravery in their files. Along with a pre-paid trip for them and their loved ones to the theme park of their choice, during a one week paid vacation, all in the name of appreciation and unwind from a harrowing experience.

    • Rattlerjake May 20, 2022, 10:50 am

      Really? They deserve awards? It was their fault for NOT properly searching the perp. Law enforcement often create their own tragedy because of laziness. My praise goes to whatever caused his death in prison!

      • Rattlerjake May 20, 2022, 11:01 am

        Fifty shots fired and they still couldn’t kill him!

        • DELCO May 22, 2022, 10:22 am

          Rattlerjake maybe with all of your overwhelming tactical experience you can go show them how it’s done. Every time you went outside the wire I think I remember you being the most calm member of the team when things got real. Without a doubt rattlerjake you would have engaged this perp without any hesitation while maintaining 100% S.A ( situational awareness) of all the other officers involved. Man with a gun starts spraying and praying, no need to worry or rely on the training of the officers on scene, rattlerjake is gonna stay calm , draw clean , move to cover, instantly eye up his background, all while taking up trigger tention, before sending multiple threat ending well placed shots. Parties over folks.

          • paul I'll call you what I want/1st Amendment May 23, 2022, 9:22 am

            hey delta burke since you flamed me already with your expertise….I want to know how many shoot outs you have been in and how many people you have dispatched????? You sound just like another hollywood expert!

  • Chris May 20, 2022, 9:01 am

    I am now of the belief that anyone with tattoo markings like this perp all over their face are unworthy of this planet anymore!

  • LJ May 20, 2022, 8:38 am

    Cause of death? Lead poisoning.

  • Deputy Dog May 20, 2022, 8:25 am

    Just another Useless Lowlife POS. He’s dead…good riddance.

  • Ian Rivlin May 20, 2022, 8:25 am

    He hanged himself – so give him credit for being a good sport.

  • Bad Penguin May 20, 2022, 7:26 am

    The fact that this big perp was wearing support hose didnt arouse suspicion? Pat downs also include groin checks so the arresting officers should be suspended or fired for not doing their jobs. Surprised the mayor didnt fire the lot of them for actually doing their job.

    BTW rubbed onion juice in my eyes and still couldnt work up a tear for this perp.

  • john lallemand May 20, 2022, 6:39 am

    HE DIED—GOOD JOB BY THE COPS BUT ALL THE COPS INVOLVED SHOULD BE SENT TO THE PISTOL RANGE FOR 3 WEEKS INSTRUSTION ON HOW TO SHOOT STRAIGHT….

    • Edward Cafarella May 20, 2022, 8:04 am

      Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice………..damn, she’s still there.

    • DELCO May 22, 2022, 10:33 am

      John lallemand, ya think going to the pistol range would have helped? Shooting some those dangerous paper targets probably would have helped these officers handle the fact they had a fellow officer already down, a suspect who was randomly shooting in every direction, multiple other officers getting involved after the powder already started to burn. But dammit let’s make sure those officers go hang up some pieces of paper stand there and practice keeping them in the 10 ring. Maybe next time the officers can ask the suspect to stand still like the paper targets so at the range. Or maybe the standards of the entire department should be developed to that of a training facility like GBRS, or ND training standards. Which actually help with real life scenarios. Things happen fast, and rounds travel even faster, only way to get legitimately better besides real experience, is having training as real as possible.

    Thank you Lori Lightfoot for continuously letting these convicted felons out of prison. I wonder why Chicago has such a crime problem. That’s right Lori you don’t have a gun problem, YOU have a CRIME problem, and it’s of your making. I wonder how the guy died in prison? Gee, I wonder.

    • Rex Dickerson May 20, 2022, 9:08 am

      Don’t forget district attorney Kim Foxx who declined to prosecute black gang members who started shooting into a gang house because the thugs in the house shot back. Foxx declared it “mutual combat”. Thus, the dimwit didn’t prosecute. Chitcongo circling the drain.
