    Chicago police officials on the scene of a shooting near West 105th and South Halsted streets on Thursday evening.

    Chicago police on Thursday evening shot a man with a shotgun on the city's far south side.

    The incident began with officers tried to talk to two men who were walking down the 10500 block of South Green Street with their faces partially covered, said Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden.

    The men ran off with the officers in tow, police said.

    During the case, one of the men pointed a weapon and an officer. The officer fired back, striking the man, police said.

    Detective sources close to the investigation told NBC Chicago the man was shot once each in the buttocks, hip and bicep. He was listed in good condition -- and in police custody -- at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

    The second man was also arrested, police said. A shotgun and a handgun were recovered, police said.

    The officers were not hurt.
