Chicago police shot and wounded a man after he allegedly shot a person and pointed a gun at another in West Pullman on the Far South Side Wednesday evening, according to officials.

Officers were called to the 100 block of West 126th Place about 5:35 p.m. after the man, 52, left a home armed with a shotgun and wounded a 47-year-old man, police said in a statement.

The man returned to the home and left again, this time holding a handgun, police said. As he walked down the street, officers “implemented de-escalation techniques” and told him to drop the gun, police said. The man pointed his gun at someone on the block and officers fired, hitting him in the hand.

The man was taken into custody and brought to Roseland Community Hospital, where he was listed in good condition, fire officials said.

The 47-year-old man was taken to Christ Medical Center, where he underwent surgery for injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.

No officers were injured.

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability was investigating.
