Chicago Police Deputy Chief of Operations Randall Darlin said at 5 p.m. Tuesday, tactical officers from the Rogers Park (24th) District were conducting a follow-up investigation into a domestic incident. They found the suspect’s vehicle and conducted an investigatory stop, Darlin said.
The suspect got out of the vehicle and started firing at officers, Darlin said. The officers returned fire and struck the man, Darlin said.
An officer issued a frantic radio call: “Shots fired, Ravenswood, Ravenswood and Lunt! We need an ambulance! We need an ambulance! Shots fired! Shots fired!”
The officers immediately provided assistance until the Fire Department arrived, Darlin said. The man was taken to AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in an unknown condition.
No officers were injured, but four officers were taken to the hospital for what police called a “well-being check.”
Police said a gun was recovered at the scene, which remained active as of late Tuesday night.READ MORE: Frank Pietrangelo, Hero Of 1991 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Says He Was Among Those Sexually Abused By Hockey Coach Tom 'Chico' Adrahtas
