William Burruss Obituary, Death – According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, William Burruss, 21, from Olympia Fields was identified as the individual who was shot and killed by a police officer on Blue Island this morning. Burruss was shot in the head by the officer. A well-being check and a tip of a suspicious car brought the police to the area around 2015 Broadway at roughly 1:30 in the morning.
The report described the car as acting suspiciously. The person who placed the call reported that the door on the driver’s side of the vehicle was open and that an unconscious male was found inside the vehicle. The cops who responded to the call reported spotting what appeared to be an AR-15-style weapon concealed on the passenger seat. When other cops came, they made efforts to revive the man who had been found unconscious.
The police said that while he was conscious, he made an attempt to grasp for the “front passenger seat.” A bullet that was fired by one of the cops struck him in the torso and killed him. After being found unresponsive, Burruss was transported to Christ Medical in Oak Lawn, where he was later pronounced dead by the attending physician.
According to one of his closest friends, not only did he go to college but he also had a huge number of friends and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those who were in his immediate vicinity. The police have decided not to divulge any additional information since they are still conducting an investigation into the matter.
