Charges are pending against three men Friday after gunshots were fired toward an off-duty Chicago Police officer in the West Town neighborhood Thursday night.

The SUV followed and its occupants fired at the officer’s vehicle, but no one was struck, police said. The men were in police custody but no charges had been filed as of Friday afternoon.
