As the detectives continued to pursue one of the subjects, they say they noticed that he was in possession of a weapon. Detectives ordered the offender to drop the weapon. Police say the offender did not comply and instead pointed his firearm in the direction of the officers. That’s when detectives discharged their weapons.

The man shot by police was transported Christ Medical Center, Chicago Fire Department officials say.

Police say a weapon was recovered at the scene.

No police were injured during the incident. A third subject is still being sought at this time.
