A third Chicago Police officer has died of COVID-19, the department announced Friday.

The officer was assigned to the 4th District on the city’s South Side, according to Tom Ahern, a department spokesman.

His name and length of service with the department were not immediately disclosed, as the officer’s extended family was still being notified of his death Friday morning, Ahern said.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and acting CPD Supt. David Brown were expected to release more details about the officer at a news conference Friday afternoon.
