CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer was struck by a suspected carjacked vehicle Monday afternoon.
Police said the incident started as a deadly shooting in the 5100 block of South Elizabeth. Three of four suspects were taken into custody after crashing in the 1900 block of West 57th Street, but police said the last one carjacked a vehicle.
The suspect then struck an officer and was later taken into custody near the Dan Ryan Woods. The officer was transported in good condition.
“So there are multiple communities that have been intersected by the madness and stupidity that’s going on in our city right now and yes this is a Monday, yes this is 3 in the afternoon,” Lopez said. “And that is completely unacceptable for people to have to come out their doors and see this going on.”
A 21-year-old man was killed in the Back of the Yards shooting, police said.
