Chicago Policewoman Ella French Murdered During Traffic Stop
The cop killed during a weekend traffic stop in Chicago was a 29-year-old woman with three years on the force, according to police and social media. Ella French was identified by the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police in a post on Facebook on Sunday morning — hours after city officials said she and another officer were hit by gunfire on the city’s South Side. “Officer Ella French was murdered while conducting a traffic stop with her partners,” according to the post on the page of Chicago FOP Lodge No. 7, the city’s largest police union.
