Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

Retired Chicago FD Lieutenant Dwain Williams was shot and killed Thursday afternoon during a carjacking attempt in Morgan Park that occurred around 2 p.m. when he was leaving a store at 11758 S. Western Ave. While walking to his vehicle, a dark-colored sedan pulled up and four men got out and bum rushed him. The men tried to take Williams’ vehicle. One of the assailants took out a gun and fired at least one shot, striking Williams in the abdomen. Williams had his own gun and fired at the assailants, but his wound proved fatal. 

Finishing 26 years of service, Williams retired two years ago after spending much of his time with Engine 122 at 79th Street and Michigan Avenue. His years of service were honored through a processional with full escort from Advocate Christ Medical Center to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office where Chicago firefighters were waiting. 

A loving husband of 30 years and a father two four has been taken away.
