CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer was attacked by a dog in South Chicago Monday afternoon.
Police said that two on-duty officers were on location in the 8300 block of South Luella Avenue when a dog exited a side door of the residence and lunged at one of the officers.
According to police reports, an officer then fired their weapon, hitting the dog.
The officer sustained a laceration to the head and the dog was taken to a nearby emergency veterinarian clinic, where it is listed in good condition.
Police were also at the same house over the weekend, after two people were killed early Sunday morning.
According to police, a man in his 50’s entered the home around 2 a.m. and fatally shot another man in the head. The suspect then chased a 26-year-old woman down the street to the 8200 block of South Paxton Avenue, where police said she was hit in the head with a blunt object.
First responders pronounced her dead at the scene.
Police said they have a suspect in custody in relation to the investigation of the two people killed Sunday, but it is unclear at this time if police activity Monday at the same address is also related to that incident.
