CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer was shot and another was injured Monday night following a traffic stop on Chicago’s West Side, according to police. The offender was also wounded.

Chicago police Supt. David Brown said both officers’ injuries are considered non-life-threatening. Both were transported to Stroger Hospital and are expected to be OK.

Around 9 p.m., in the area of Sacramento Boulevard and Polk Street, CPD officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Brown did not say why the car was pulled over.

According to Brown, as officers approached the suspect’s vehicle, the driver rammed one officer, pinning them between two cars. The pinned officer suffered an ankle injury, Brown added.

Brown said the offender then opened fire on the officers. One officer sustained a gunshot wound to the left pinky finger.

Police returned fire, striking the offender. First responders told WGN News that an ambulance took the offender to Mt. Sinai Hospital in serious to critical condition.

Authorities recovered two guns from the suspect vehicle.

Brown said officers would view pod and body camera footage of the incident.

The city police superintendent said Monday’s incident highlights the dangers of the profession.

“There’s been a 500% increase over the last two years of officers being shot at or shot,” Brown said. “It is the most dangerous time to be a police officer in this country, where offenders are brazen, not only against our residents with these violent crimes but not hesitant at all to fire upon officers.”

An investigation is ongoing.
