Two Chicago Police officers were injured Sunday afternoon when someone threw a firecracker at their squad car, according to the Chicago Police Department.
The incident happened in the 7400 block of S Exchange Ave in the city's South Shore neighborhood, authorities said.
The officers were patrolling the corner at around 4:20 p.m. when an unknown vehicle approached their squad car, and someone inside threw a firecracker at the window, police said.
Preliminary reports from Chicago Police said the object was a half stick of dynamite, but CPD spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi later said it was a firecracker.
An explosion occurred, authorities confirmed, after which the squad car wouldn't start. Both officers were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said. They were listed in good condition.
No one is in custody, and police continue to investigate.
