Officer Ella French was shot in the face and pronounced dead at a local hospital. Her partner, Officer Carlos Yanez, was shot multiple times in the torso and is listed in critical condition in an ICU.

Police say 21-year-old Emonte Morgan was the triggerman. He is charged with murder, attempted murder, and unlawful use of a weapon.

His older brother, 22-year-old Eric Morgan, was the driver of the car. He also faces the same charges.

A female passenger, who later turned herself in, was not charged with a crime. She is cooperating with police.

The Morgan brothers are scheduled to attend a bond hearing on Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Update: Ella French’s brother, Andrew, told the Chicago Sun-Times in an interview that his sister was not married and did not have any children.
