Off-duty officer shoots, wounds man on North Side
April 15, 2006 (WLS) -- A man is in the hospital after being shot early Saturday by an off-duty Chicago police officer.
Police spokesperson Pat Camden says the officer was on Glenwood near Morse in the Rogers Park neighborhood when he heard shots fired. The officer discovered a man shot and nearby was another man on his cell phone. When the officer approached the man on the phone, that man reportedly told the officer to go away and pulled out a gun. That's when the officer fired at the man who then took off.
"The officer engages, fires at the individual at two different locations and he winds up down the street, the offender in the laundry room, shot in the leg and the foot," said Pat Camden, Chicago police department.
The suspect's injuries are not believed to be life threatening. The other man that was shot also suffered wounds that are not life threatening.
