CHICAGO -- Chicago police shot a man they say pulled a gun and pointed it at officers. It happened in the 5600 block of South Morgan just after 1:30 a.m in the Englewood neighborhood.
The man identified by friends as 23-year-old Kenny Lewis was part of a large crowd in the middle of the street. Officers and witnesses say when police approached the crowd, one man ran away and pulled a gun and pointed it at police, forcing them to return fire.
A man in the crowd said it was a get together to remember the death of a friend who died in a car accident a year ago. Witnesses say they weren't causing any problems.
Police say people were "drinking and acting unruly."
A gun was recovered at the scene.
The man was treated at Stroger Hospital and is in custody, according to police.
No police officers were hurt.
