An on-duty Cook County Sheriff deputy was involved in a shooting Wednesday afternoon in the Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side.

Two Cook County Civil Process Deputies, who serve court documents, were in the 5100 block of South Drexel Avenue at 3:50 p.m. when they came upon a shooting in progress, according to Chicago police and Sophia Ansari, a Cook County Sheriff spokesperson.

Someone involved in the shooting pointed a gun at one of the deputies, and the deputy fired back, Ansari said.

No injuries were reported, and police have a suspect in custody, police said.

Chicago police are still investigating the shooting.
