Two Charged in CPD Officer's Death

Two young men are now charged with the shooting death of 27-year-old Chicago Police Officer Alejandro "Alex" Valadez.

21-year-old Kevin Walker and 20-year-old Shawn Gaston each face three charges tonight:

First Degree Murder
First Degree Murder of a Peace Officer
Attempted Murder

According to Chicago Police, Gaston was the shooter and Walker was the driver.

Valadez was in plainclothes when he was shot in the head and leg about 12:15 Monday morning. Police say he and his partner were standing outside talking with someone when the shots were fired.

It's sad that not only did a 27-year-old officer die in this tragedy, but that two young "men" are now charged in that death.

I feel so bad for this young mans family (Police Office). My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I just hope they have the right people who did it and if they do give them the max sentence! It’s so sad to hear years later that they have the wrong people. It’s like music to my ears these days, so many wrongfully convicted.


It's a shame that all 3 lives and many more are affected by the stupid act of random violence. I also blame the parents of these 2 thugs as they did not raise their kids properly. if you are not going to raise your kids as good citizens, do us a favor and wear condoms or get neutered and don't have children.


These guys need to be given the death sentence, PERIOD!!! You can't give them life in jail as they will be treated like gods for Killing a police officer. So many peopla complain about the police but wont hesitate to call them.
