Calumet District officers responding to a call of a person with a gun near 118th and State got into a foot pursuit with an armed suspect about 11 a.m., police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said.

Two squad cars with their emergency equipment activated were on their way to assist with the pursuit when they crashed at 115th and State, Sedevic said

Four officers–two from each squad car–were taken to hospitals in “serious but stable” condition, Sedevic said. Their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
