Two men are in custody after a shoplifting incident that led to a police-involved shooting.
It happened at the Jewel-Osco near Foster and Harlem in the city’s Oriole Park neighborhood at about 7 p.m. Thursday.
Witnesses say the two men loaded up a cart full of groceries, left the store without paying, and then loaded up their car.
Store employees alerted an off-duty detective who was shopping inside.
She confronted the men in the parking lot, but police say they sped towards her forcing her to fire two warning shots.
“The officer, in fear for her life, discharged her weapon at the offenders,” police said in a statement.
The detective wasn’t hurt in the incident.
It’s not clear if any charges have been filed yet.
