A man was critically wounded by Chicago police officers in a shooting Friday in Pullman on the Far South Side.

Friday evening, officers responded to a call of a person with a gun, fighting with a neighbor, according to a statement from the Civilian Office of Police Accountability.

When police arrived, the man was walking his dog and officers told him why they had been called and asked him to raise his shirt, COPA said.

Officers then saw “what appeared to be the handle of a firearm,” and asked him to tie up his dog, at which point the man fled, according to COPA.

Police followed him briefly and when they saw him draw his gun, multiple officers opened fire, COPA said.

The man, whose age wasn’t known, was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to the Chicago Fire Department. No other details on his injuries were available.

No officers were injured during the incident. Two guns and a knife were recovered at the scene.
