Two of the officers were treated for cuts and scrapes before being released from the hospital. The other officer was released after being evaluated.
It all began about 10:20 a.m. Tuesday when Englewood police officers contacted Grisenti, 22, in a stolen vehicle outside the Kimberly Apartments at 1401 East Girard Place, a few blocks north of East Hampden Avenue. That’s when Grisenti struck and dragged the three officers. Officers opened fire on the suspect.
A female passenger who was in the car was taken into custody. Grisenti was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
Investigators indicated that there is body camera footage of the incident but said it will not be released until all the officers involved have been interviewed.
