An ambulance drove right into a shootout in the East Garfield Park neighborhood early Saturday.
It happened in the 3500 block of West Lake Street, just after 12:15 a.m.
The paramedics were not on a call at the time. Paramedics called a “10-1” over the radio, a term used to signal that a police officer, paramedic or firefighter is in distress and in immediate need of help.
In all, two men were found shot, one in the head and the other in the chest. Both taken to John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County.
The paramedics were not injured.
