Woman Dead After Officer-Involved Shooting on I-90

Woman Dead After Officer-Involved Shooting on I-90”

According to the release, the incident began at approximately 12:34 a.m. Monday, when police spotted a "suspicious vehicle" belonging to Clements. A short time later, her vehicle was found, damaged, in the westbound lanes of I-90 near Route 25. Police negotiated with her for over an hour, and during that time she would move her vehicle several feet at a time.

After initially trying to pull over the vehicle over, officers called off their pursuit, Swoboda said. Eventually, they noticed a fire had started inside the vehicle. What exactly happened is unclear, but one officer fired shots, hitting Clements.

Clements was transported to St. Alexius Hospital in Hoffman Estates where she was pronounced dead.

Elgin police and Illinois State Police are on the scene investigating.

The officers were wearing body-cams, which have yet to be reviewed.

An officer ultimately opened fire and the woman was struck, Swoboda said.

All lanes are blocked on westbound Jame Addams after a police-involved shooting. Jensen has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, per department policy.

Police say they then "disengaged immediately", and tried to negotiate with her for over an hour. "She's about this tall, probably 100 lbs. soaking wet. It doesn't make sense", said Melissa Sanders, victim's cousin. "If the officer killed her in righteousness".

Clements' family is extremely upset about her death.

Clements' family said they are searching for answers. "This is obviously a very sad day and we recognize that".
