State Rep. Barbara Wheeler, who represents Fox Lake, urged calm as police track three suspects related to the shooting of a Fox Lake police officer today.

"As information continues to come in about the shooting of another police officer in the line of duty in Fox Lake, I hope we can all remain calm and pray for the officer's family and the other officers in harms way right now," Wheeler, a Crystal Lake Republican, said in a statement. "Eleven police officers have needless lost their lives since Aug. 20th alone in America because of shootings and sadly our communities have been directly impacted today."


Media reports say the officer has died.
