Slain Chicago Cop Nathaniel Taylor Gets Justice After Conviction of Accused Drug Dealer
The Chicago Tribune reported the conviction last week as a reputed drug dealer was convicted on Thursday in the 2008 murder of Chicago police Officer Nathaniel Taylor.
The report stated:
A Cook County jury took less than two hours to find Lamar Cooper, 40, guilty of first-degree murder for the slaying of Taylor, 39, a veteran narcotics officer who was trying to serve a warrant to search Cooper’s fortified residence.
Taylor’s partner, Officer Lemornet Miller, returned fire, shooting Cooper nine times, but Cooper survived.
