CHICAGO — Chicago Police say the man accused of shooting a police officer over the weekend is a recent parolee. CPD shooting suspect Dashonn Maggette is charged with attempted murder after a shootout Saturday.
Police say they saw him drinking at 82nd and Maryland. They chased him into a building, then struggled over a gun.
One officer was shot in the hand, he’ll be okay. His partner shot and critically wounded Maggette.
Police say Maggette was paroled just last month, and has a long rap sheet.
