CHICAGO — New details have emerged about a University of Chicago police-involved shootout with a gunman near campus.

The suspect has been identified as 27-year-old Rhyseen Wilson.

Court documents revealed what led up the Tuesday, Jan. 18. encounter. According to prosecutors, an armed Wilson was experiencing a mental health episode and called 911, saying that he wanted to commit suicide by cop.

A University of Chicago police officer spotted Wilson on South Woodlawn holding a gun. Wilson allegedly fired his weapon, and in a shootout with police, the officer shot and wounded him. 

Wilson now faces attempted murder and weapons charges. 

On Wednesday, University of Chicago police released bodycam footage of an officer-involved shootout.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the officer was involved in another shooting with a University of Chicago student who was also in the midst of a mental health episode back in 2018. The officer was cleared of any wrongdoing.
