About 4:50 p.m., an officer pulled a vehicle over in the 500 block of Jeffrey Avenue for a traffic violation, Calumet City police said in a statement.

The driver, a 27-year-old man, got out of the vehicle and allegedly pointed a gun at the officer, who pulled out his own gun and fired shots, striking the man, police said.

The man ran back to his vehicle and allegedly fired multiple shots at the officer before driving off, police said.

He was later found at St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago, Indiana, where he was taken into custody, police said. A gun was recovered at the scene.

Charges are pending.
