Bobby Selvie, who is charged with attempted murder of a police officer and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, is the brother of Michael Selvie, who was charged in December with killing the bodyguard of Chicago Bears defensive lineman Terry "Tank" Johnson at a Near North Side nightclub, according to sources.
The police-involved shooting occurred outside the Selvies' home, on the 800 block of West 50th Place, in the city's Back of the Yards neighborhood, shortly before 1 a.m. Monday.
The detective, who was shot in the lower back, remained hospitalized tonight in serious condition. Investigators have been unable to question him.
We are glad to see that this coward has been apprehended. Our continued thoughts and prayers go out to the Detective.
