Southwest Side street renamed for fallen officer

May 24, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The southeast corner of Leamington near 51st Street is now Michael Gordon Way.

Officer Gordon was killed in August of 2004 when a drunk driver struck his squad car.

Members of the Gordon family attended the ceremony. They selected this location because Officer Gordon lived on this street for a short time and both his grandmother and father both grew up there.
