Police said, around 5 p.m. Tuesday, tactical officers from the Rogers Park (24th) District were conducting a follow-up investigation into a domestic incident, when they spotted Olugbode’s vehicle at Lunt and Ravenswood avenues.
Officers conducted an investigatory stop, and Olugbode got out of the vehicle and started firing at officers, Chicago Police Deputy Chief of Operations Randall Darlin said. The officers returned fire and struck the man, Darlin said.
The officers immediately provided assistance until the Fire Department arrived, Darlin said. Olugbode was taken to AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in an unknown condition.READ MORE: Man Stabbed On CTA Blue Line Train

No officers were injured, but four officers were taken to the hospital for what police called a “well-being check.”
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability was investigating the officers’ use of force in the incident. The officers involved will go on 30-day routine administrative duties.
This was the 72nd time this year that officers have been fired upon, Darlin said.MORE NEWS: 'Work-Share Illinois' Helping Workers Who Are Partially Laid Off By Employers
