Guardsman Killed While Shielding Son
EAST CHICAGO (CBS) — Home from Afghanistan for just five months, 25-year-old Indiana National Guardsman Willie Cook was gunned down while shielding his two-year-old son. CBS 2′s Dana Kozlov reports its another case of mistaken identity, with no one in custody. Two-year-old Antoine Cook uses a toy cell phone to talk to his father. It's all he has. "And to know that your 2 year old has to pretend to talk to his dad," said Laquana Norwood. On February 2, Cook, was shot and killed while in a car near his grandmother's East Chicago house where he was taking Antoine for a visit. The veteran was found on top of his little boy, shielding him from the 15 bullets that pierced the car.
