From today's Chicago Sun:

A career-burglar picked the wrong house to steal from when he targeted the home of a Chicago cop’s family Friday morning, prosecutors allege.

Lamont Ferdinand, 21, hobbled into court Sunday morning bare-chested and bandaged, after a bullet recovered from his body was matched to the officer’s gun.

The off-duty officer confronted Ferdinand in the home on the 7600 block of South Vernon at 9 a.m. Friday, according to a police report.

When Ferdinand reached into his pocket “as if for a gun,” the cop shot him and he escaped, the report says.

He was treated at Stroger Hospital, where a bullet removed was from his chest, the report says.

Though Ferdinand claimed he was shot in a drive-by shooting, the recovered bullet matched the officer’s gun and Ferdinand’s jacket was recovered from near the officer’s home, the report says.

Ferdinand, who has three prior felony convictions and was on parole at the time of the alleged offense, is charged with aggravated assault to a peace officer and residential burglary.

He was ordered held on $100,000 bond by Judge Adam Bourgeois Sunday.
