FBI agent involved in shooting near UIC campus

An FBI-involved shooting near the University of Chicago campus this afternoon lead to a car chase and a crash. Three people were injured, including one of the suspects, and investigators are searching for two other people who fled the accident scene.

An on-duty FBI agent fired his gun hitting at least one person in a parking lot at Ashland and Roosevelt around 12:30 Monday afternoon, said Chicago FBI spokesperson Frank Bochte. After the shooting, the FBI chased the suspects’ vehicle a short distance to Flournoy and Paulina, where the vehicle collided with another car, said Bochte.

One suspect was shot in the hip. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, according to Chicago Police News Affairs. A Chicago Fire Dept. spokesperson confirmed two other people were injured and transported to Stroger Hospital from the crash scene.

No FBI agents were injured, said Bochte.

Investigators are still searching for two people who ran away from the scene. The cause of the shooting remains under investigation.

    Everybody knows how the FBI works. They always tend to blame others if things get messy like this one!

    Three black gang-bangers, two males and one female, tried to run the agent over. They were breaking into vehicles.

    UIC is the University of Illinois Chicago. This is not the same as the University of Chicago (in Hyde Park).

    You could tell when the FBI moved into the neighborhood. They can be seen picking up their undercover bum clothes from the dry cleaners.
