Illinois Cops Taser, then Shoot and Kill Woman Trying to Escape Burning Car

None of shots were fired at close range, according to an autopsy report by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office last week.

The report says Clements was shot twice in the head and once in the chest on March 12 by Elgin cop Lt. Christian Jensen.

She was also tasered as she exited her burning vehicle after being pulled over for driving a “suspicious vehicle.”

Officer Jenson, and the other officers on the scene were wearing body cameras.

The medical examiner has had sufficient time to review toxicology reports, which reveal Clements had cocaine in her system at the time Jensen shot her multiple times, killing her.

Jensen first pulled over Clements for driving a “suspicious vehicle” near Cedar Avenue in Elgin, Illinois.

Clements fled with a knife.

At that point, officers claim they “disengaged immediately” and later attempted to “negotiate” with Clements.

Clements would move her vehicle up “several feet,” according to the officers.

Eventually, officers observed a fire inside the vehicle.

The Elgin Police Department claims officers attempted to get Clements out of the burning vehicle.

But something went wrong, they say, and Jensen’s gun went off three times, striking Clements twice in the head and once in the chest.

Clements was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead after being shot three times.

Jensen has since been on paid leave and has not yet been charged with a crime. He has worked for the Elgin Police Department for 19 years.

UPDATE: PINAC initially reported Elgin police hadn’t released the video, but that was incorrectly reported by another news outlet. The video is now included in the article.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
