This weekend, a rookie officer was shot and killed during what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop.
Police have now reported that a suspect in the case has been apprehended.
Carl Boards II, 42, was charged on Monday with murder.
As it turns out, Boards is an ex-con who liked to make music about killing cops.
He is now facing charges of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, and two counts of resisting law enforcement.
He is the alleged shooter that killed Elwood police officer Noah Shahnavaz, a 24-year-old rookie officer.
Shahnavaz had stopped Boards’ for a routine traffic stop, but instead came under immense fire.
Investigators found 36 rifle casings at the scene, with the officer never having a chance to draw his weapon.
This was an assassination, plain and simple.
When police finally arrested Boards, he had a 9mm handgun and an AK-47-style rifle with a high-capacity magazine in his car, presumably the weapon he used to kill the officer.
Officer Mike Kavanaugh, who was involved in the 2006 police shooting that landed Boards in prison for 13 years, stated, “Officers SHAHNAVAZ should still be alive.
“Boards should still be in prison. I’m not going to say much more about this.”
Tough to disagree with that statement.
