Latest on the fatal shooting of a police officer in northern Illinois

FOX LAKE, Ill. (AP) –¬†Hundreds gathered at a park for a vigil in memory of a northern Illinois police lieutenant who was fatally shot in the line of duty.

Mayor Donny Schmit said Wednesday the death of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz has left a hole in his heart.

The officer’s widow, Melanie Gliniewicz, took to the stage in a Fox Lake park surrounded by her sons. She thanked the people attending the vigil and those offering their support and prayers.

Gliniewicz said her husband was her “best friend, my hero, the love of my life for the last 26 and half years.”

A minister, Mike Johnson, said Gliniewicz died serving the community and was about helping others. He asked the crowd who among them would replace him.
