It was later determined that when no one picked up his 5 year old son from day care, 024th district was contacted. CPD and CFD went to his residence for a well-being check. When no one answered, CPD and CFD made forced entry into the home and found both Officer Meng and his wife unconscious in separate rooms. Both were transported to Swedish Covenant Hospital where Officer Meng succumbed to his injuries and his wife is still fighting for her life in critical condition, most likely due to carbon-monoxide poisoning.
It was later determined that Officer Meng parked his vehicle in his garage which is connected to his home, and inadvertently left his car on due to the push-to-start feature and after being forced to work long hours with canceled days off during the riots/looting/protest throughout the city.
Officer Meng served the City of Chicago as a Police Officer for 2 year's.
He leaves behind a wife and 5 year old son. His wife is still in critical condition and there’s only one family member in the US. He was an active Asian American Law Enforcement Association Member (AALEA) Chicago Chapter & FOP Lodge 7 member who participated in many of our functions.
Officers throughout the country lose their lives almost everyday serving and protecting the very city and country they knew and once loved, even during dyer times. Officer Meng unfortunately lost his life due to extreme fatigue and exhaustion from serving and protecting our community from criminals, looters, and rioters. All donations will directly help Officer Meng's 5 year old son and wife. His family needs you!
Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
