Chicago Police shot a man overnight who officers said pointed a semi-automatic handgun at them.

Police said two officers tried to interview the man around 9 p.m. Sunday near 131st and South Langley on the city's Far South Side when he took off.

The officers followed him, and the man hid behind a dumpster, police said. The man pointed a TEC-9 in the officers' direction even after they told him to drop the weapon, police said.

One of the officers shot the man in the foot, and he was taken to an area hospital for his injuries.

Neither of the officers was injured. The TEC-9 was recovered at the scene, police said.

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating. No charges had been filed as of Monday morning.
