[Excerpts] A man is dead and a police officer is recovering Saturday after a morning shooting. It happened in Robbins... State police spent hours at the Robbins housing complex investigating a shooting which happened around 4 a.m. The agency was called in because a police officer was involved in the shooting, which left 33-year-old Philip Lloyd dead. According to witnesses, Lloyd was visiting family in the area when a Robbins police officer approached him. "They was talking, or whatever, arguing or whatever, and then I heard gunshots," said witness Tanya Lewis. Robbins police chief Johnny Holmes did not want to speak on-camera, but by phone Holmes said the officer was at the complex responding to disturbance calls. Philip Lloyd's family and friends, however, say the officer was harassing Lloyd, who according to them, was in the midst of a legal battle with the City of Robbins concerning another police shooting two years ago, involving the same officer they believe shot Lloyd this morning. "This is the second time they shot my friend. The first time they shot him, they shot him in the back. It messed his stomach up. Now they shot him. He dead now," said witness Derrick Ford... Lloyd's family and friends say adding to their devastation is their belief that Lloyd could have survived the shooting had he received immediate medical treatment. "No ambulance, no nothing. They didn't bring nobody up to see him or nothing to try to resuscitate him back or anything," Hill said. State police say ambulances were called to the scene. One witness who did not want to appear on camera says Lloyd was alive after the shooting, but paramedics were prevented from treating him...
