A 50-year-old man faces felony charges after shooting toward officers Monday morning about a block from Chicago police headquarters on the South Side.

Officers responded to a call of a person with a gun in the 3600 block of South Indiana Avenue and approached Darryl Daine, who matched the description, Chicago police said.

Daine ran away and then turned and fired one shot at the officers, police said in a statement.

No one was injured, police said.

Daine was charged with one felony count each of aggravated discharge of a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated assault of a peace officer.

He is scheduled to appear in bond court Wednesday.
