Summary: Night Chief James Paulk was shot and killed while investigating reports of a man being shoved into a taxi by another man.

As he and another officer were at the scene of the incident, the witnesses observed the cab driving on Illinois Route 37 and pointed it out to the officers. Night Chief Paulk and the other officer stopped the cab and as they approached the cab, the driver opened fire, striking Night Chief Paulk in the heart.
