7th PDAC names Officer of the Month

Of­ficer Ter­rence Black has been named Of­ficer of the Month for Oc­to­ber in the 7th Po­lice Dis­trict.

Mem­bers of the 7th Po­lice Dis­trict Ad­vis­ory Coun­cil re­cog­nized Black on Thursday dur­ing the group’s monthly meet­ing at CORA Ser­vices.

Black ar­res­ted a man sus­pec­ted of point­ing a loaded gun at two neigh­bors on Oct. 21. The in­cid­ent oc­curred on the 8500 block of Ver­ree Road. Black loc­ated the sus­pect in his first-floor apart­ment and took pos­ses­sion of his sil­ver .45-caliber long Colt Der­rin­ger, which was loaded with two live rounds.

When the vic­tims con­firmed the iden­tity of the al­leged gun­man, Black ar­res­ted him on charges of pos­sess­ing an in­stru­ment of crime, mak­ing ter­ror­ist­ic threats, simple as­sault and reck­less en­dan­ger­ment. ••
