Misdemeanor charges have been filed against a man who allegedly took a “shooting stance” at Chicago police officers, prompting police to shoot at him Wednesday on the East Side.
Daniel Mares, 31, faces two counts of assault in connection to the incident, Chicago police said.
Officers responded to a call of a disturbance about 11:30 p.m. in an alley in the 11300 block of South Avenue L when Mares walked towards their squad car and “got into a shooting stance,” according to Chicago police.
At least one officer fired shots at Mares but did not strike him, police said.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating the incident.
Mares is due in court July 17.
