A person who shot at Chicago police officers was wounded after officers returned fire Friday night in University Village on the Near West Side, according to police.

About 10:45 p.m., 12th District officers approached two males who were allegedly showing handguns in the 1300 block of West Hastings Street when one of the males fired at officers, police said.

The officers returned fire, hitting one person, police said.

A spokesman for the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, which investigates all police shootings, said it was “too early to confirm” whether the wounded person had fired on the officers.

The person, whose age was unknown, was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, according to police.

The second male fled on foot, but was taken into custody by responding officers, authorities said. Two weapons were allegedly recovered at the scene.

No officers were injured or struck by gunfire, but at least two were taken to a hospital for observation, police said.

The officers involved were put on routine administrative duties for 30 days as COPA investigates.
