Two Chicago Police officers were injured while arresting a shoplifting suspect who allegedly fired a gun at them in the North Side Andersonville neighborhood on Saturday evening.

About 8 p.m., officers on duty saw at least one person carrying out a theft at a store in the 5400 block of North Clark, police said.

A shot was fired at officers while they tried to make an arrest, but no one was struck, police said.

Two officers were injured in the ensuing struggle to put the alleged shoplifter into custody, police said. They were taken to hospitals with injuries that weren’t thought to be life-threatening.

The alleged shoplifter was arrested and charges were pending late Saturday. A weapon was recovered at the scene, police said.

The Independent Police Review Authority, which investigates all police-involved shootings, was notified about the incident.
