The officer was riding home on his bike Saturday night around 10 p.m. when she saw the 4-year-old dart directly in his path, according to The Tribune. He ditched his bike to avoid hitting her but it skidded, hitting the girl and her 18-year-old cousin. The child’s father, Christopher Middleton (pictured), who was inside of a nearby restaurant, approached the officer yelling and screaming, according to authorities.

The Tribune has more:

“Chris asked him, ‘Why did you shoot me, why did you shoot me,’ ” Jones said.

The officer was still pointing the gun towards Middleton, who was on the ground at the time, when Jones said she ran towards him and told him, “Please don’t shoot him no more.”

Then Jones laid on top of Middleton with her back up and dialed 911, she said.

“I saw him take his last breath,” said Jones. “He was a father trying to protect his daughter. He was never a violent person.”

Middleton died at Loyola University Medical Center just before 10:30 p.m., a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He lived in the 500 block of South 2nd Avenue in Maywood, the spokesman said. The 18-year-old is being held for questioning, Shapiro said.

The 4-year-old girl was taken to Loyola hospital for observation with bruises and contusions, Camden and Shapiro said. Camden said the officer’s decision to bail from the bike prevented a head-on collision.

The incident is currently under investigation.

Middleton leaves behind a 6-year-old son and a baby girl who is scheduled arrive in December. Jones, who is five months pregnant, says she and Middleton were scheduled to get married next weekend.

“He wanted to do that before we had this child, because we were getting our lives together with God and we were trying to do the right thing and then this happened,” Jones said.
