CHICAGO (AP) — A convicted felon from California accused of shooting and wounding a suburban Chicago police officer during a traffic stop is being held without bond.
Daniel Mageo was formally charged Saturday with two counts of attempted first-degree murder of a peace officer and aggravated battery to a police officer.
Prosecutors said Saturday that the 27-year-old Mageo is on parole for a July 2014 felony human trafficking conviction involving a child victim.
Cicero police Officer Luis Duarte was wounded in the shooting Thursday on Chicago’s southwest side. He is in good condition following surgery.
