Shooting case nears closure:
Bensenville Village Manager Jim Johnson said Tuesday that the investigation into last week's shooting of an unarmed resident by a Bensenville Public Safety officer is "almost complete." Village President John Geils also spoke for the first time since the unnamed officer shot resident Ted Wronkiewicz, of 12 E. Belmont Ave., when he believed Wronkiewicz's mobile phone was a weapon. Wronkiewicz was treated at a hospital and released. "The village expresses its concern and best wishes for both the resident and the officer involved, as both were pretty well shaken-up over the unfortunate incident. This was a terrible accident and it's hard to find words to express how we feel," Geils said. Wronkiewicz, who was shot in the right calf, has declined to talk about the incident and the officer has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the investigation's conclusion.
