The incident happened before 8:30 p.m. in the 5300 block of West Van Buren Avenue. Preliminary reports said Austin District officers were responding to a call of a person with a gun and heard shots fired, police said.The police need to hire some Madison Avenue people to come up with better ways to describe these incidents. In a confrontation, the bad guy either lunges or reaches into his waistband, when they're running away, they always "turn around and point a gun."
The officers saw a male suspect who tried to flee when they approached him. Police said the suspect turned and pointed a gun in their direction. One of the officers fired their weapon striking the suspect.
Chicago Fire Department spokesman Rich Rosado said one person with gunshot wounds was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
Police said a weapon was recovered at the scene.
