Park Forest police officer Tim Jones, who was shot and seriously wounded in a gunfight with a suspect last week, remains in critical condition at a local hospital.

Well over a hundred family, friends, and community members attended a vigil to show their support and pray for the injured officer.

Officer Jones, 24, comes from a police family. His father, William Jones, is the Chief of Police of the Country Club Hills Police Department.

Police officials have said that Jones has not awakened since the shooting and subsequent surgery.
