Clifton Lewis - Law Enforcement - Illinois

Police Officer Clifton Lewis, age 41, died on December 29, 2011, in Chicago, Illinois.

Clifton was a member of the Chicago Police Department. He had 8 years of service with the Department. He had earned 81 commendations during his time with the force.

He was working an overtime security detail at a convenience store, which had been robbed several weeks earlier, when two male subjects entered the store at about 8:30 pm. One of the men shot Officer Lewis multiple times before grabbing his service weapon and badge and fleeing the store.
Angels of God, pray for

Officer Lewis was transported to Stroger Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. The two suspects remain at large.

Clifton was a very tall man with a commanding presence and a deep voice. He is described as quiet and intuitive. 

Fellow officers describe him as having a courageous heart and a man who was devoted to his family. 

Pray that the persons who killed Clifton are brought to justice. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Clifton Lewis is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
