A Chicago police officer shot a person in an exchange of gunfire during an “investigative stop” on the West Side Sunday night, officials say.
Officers were conducting a stop around 8:30 p.m. in the 200 block of North Kostner Avenue when the person — a male whose age was unknown — ran off, Chicago police said.
Officers were then shot at and returned fire, striking the person, according to police. He was transported to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
No officers was hit by the gunfire, but one officer was transported to a hospital for observation and listed in good condition.
A weapon was recovered from the scene, police said.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability will investigate the incident. The officers involved will be placed on routine administrative duties for a period of 30 days.
