Two men are facing felony charges after a shootout with Chicago Police officers Monday afternoon in the South Side Burnside neighborhood.

Officers responding to a call of a person with a gun in the 9000 block of South Ellis were shot at by a suspect and returned fire, according to Chicago Police.

CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi initially reported that a person had been shot by police.

Emergency room doctors ultimately determined 30-year-old Robert Davis had actually suffered a dislocated knee and was not shot, police said.
