One person was shot and wounded by a Chicago police officer during a traffic stop Friday afternoon on the Near West Side, officials said.

About 3:10 p.m., officers had pulled over a vehicle in the 2100 block of West Adams Street when they observed someone inside the car with a firearm, Chicago Police Department spokesman Tom Ahern said on Twitter. One officer opened fire and struck the individual, Ahern said.

The person was taken to Stroger Hospital, Ahern said. Their condition and age were not immediately released. An officer was also taken to an area hospital for observation.

No officers were injured in the shooting, Ahern said on Twitter. One person was arrested and a gun was recovered at the scene, he said.

Ahern posted a photo of a handgun on the passenger seat of a vehicle.

The officers involved in the incident were placed on routine administrative duties for 30 days. The Civilian Office of Police Accountability was investigating.

Additional details were not released.

This is the second person shot by Chicago police officers in two days. Around 11 p.m. Thursday, an officer shot a gunman while arresting him in the Back of the Yards on the South Side.
