Chicago Police officers shot and seriously wounded a man who was attacking a woman inside a Gresham neighborhood home Saturday morning on the South Side, according to police.

Officers were called to a domestic disturbance about 5:30 a.m. in the 7600 block of South Ada, and they found the man stabbing the woman with a knife, CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. The officers then shot the man multiple times.

Both the man and the woman were taken to a hospital in serious condition, Guglielmi said. The woman was likely stabbed.

Police body cameras captured the shooting, according to Chicago Police Sgt. Rocco Alioto.

The officers will be placed on administrative duty for 30 days per CPD policy. The Civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating the use of force.
