Off-duty Chicago officer charged with shooting 3 people at Blue Island bowling alley

BLUE ISLAND, Ill. – An off-duty Chicago police officer has been charged after shooting three people at a bowling alley in the southern suburbs earlier this week.

Kyjuan Tate, 27, is charged with two counts of aggravated bodily harm with a firearm and one count of attempted murder. He is expected to appear in bond court on Friday.

Tate was at Blue Island’s Burr Oak Bowl on Tuesday night when, following an argument, he fatally shot three people, according to court records and the Civilian Police Accountability Office.

All three survived, and Blue Island police told the Chicago Sun-Times that one of the victims remained hospitalized Friday.

Sources said Tate – who joined the CPD less than a year ago – has been assigned to Calumet district in the far south.

After the shooting, the CPD said Tate was stripped of his police powers and assigned him to an office.
