Good afternoon, Chicago.

On his last night as a police officer, Chicago Police Department Officer Carlos Yanez Jr. remembers pulling over an SUV, then nothing more until he lay on the ground, struggling to breath and hearing panicked yells from his partner.

“I heard gunfire right above me, and then I heard Josh screaming ‘Yanez! Yanez! French!,’” Yanez testified today, referring to Detective Joshua Blas.

The trial for a man accused of killing Chicago police Officer Ella French and injuring Yanez resumed at the Leighton Criminal Court Building after an emotional start on Tuesday when the jury saw footage from body cameras that depicted the chaotic moments before and after the shooting.
