Multiple officers received a valor award for their actions in taking a suspect into custody after he fired shots at them in North Chicago, authorities said.
Officer Cory Collum, Officer Micah Cress, Officer Tierro Groves, Officer David Mando, Lt. Eric Martin and Detective Michael Mueller received the 100 Club of Illinois valor award.
The 100 Club of Illinois has given the 100 Club Valor Award since 1980 to police officers, firefighters and EMS professionals serving in Illinois.
Awards are presented to those who have performed actions “above and beyond the call of duty.”
The North Chicago officers received the award Wednesday recognizing and commending them for their actions on June 26.
The officers were fired upon during a domestic disturbance, officials said.
The offender was taken into custody without being harmed and charged.
North Chicago Police Chief Lazaro Perez introduced the six officers at the award event, which was held in Chicago.
Mayor Rockingham, aldermen Carl Evans and Bobby Allen and Assistant Police Chief Gary Lunn were also in attendance.
“This was a rare instance where these professionals were recognized for what they do each day,” the City of North Chicago said in a statement.
