CHICAGO (WLS) -- A 47-year-old off-duty Chicago police sergeant was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.
The officer was identified as Sgt. Lori Rice, a 21-year veteran of the police department who worked in the 12th District.
Rice was found at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the 900 block of South Bell, just off Taylor Street, in a vehicle on Chicago's West Side.
This is the second suicide this year involving a Chicago police officer. Last year, four CPD officers died of suicide.
Sunday morning, a procession followed as the officer's body was taken to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
