July 23, 2006 (WLS) -- Chicago Police shot and injured a man overnight. The incident happened as officers were responding to a call of shots fired in the area of 60th and Bishop around 1:30 in the morning.

Spokesperson Pat Camden told ABC7 News that when the officers got out of the car they took cover, they announced who they were and told the suspect to drop the gun.
"The individual turns, keeping shooting down the block. He turned with the gun. At the officers at this point. They fire and in defense of their lives. The subject is hit I believe twice in the leg," Camden said.
