MAC Donates to Slain Ham

Tyrone Hardin KD9ERC,  who worked as a railroad security guard, was fatally shot after his vehicle was stolen by a man being pursued by police for an earlier car theft. He was pronounced dead of bullet wounds to the abdomen at South Suburban Hospital by the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. It was 6:25 p.m., not quite two hours after the shooting on Saturday, November 26.

Tyrone got his license after testing with the 220 MHz Guys Amateur Radio Club in Chicago.

Police have issued a warrant for 24-year-old Rashad Williams of East Hazel Crest. He is being charged with first-degree murder in Tyrone's killing.

His wife Gwinette Oliver told the Chicago Sun-Times he was working the security guard post as a second job so he would have enough money to give his family a nice Christmas. She said he assured her the job wasn't dangerous.

Tyrone Hardin was 38 years old and the father of a 5-year-old son.  (CHICAGO SUN TIMES)
