2 Injured in Police-Involved Shooting on Chicago's South Side

A 20-year-old man was injured in a police-involved shooting on Chicago's South Side Friday evening, according to fire officials.

The shooting was reported before 5:08 p.m. in the 7100 block of South Green Street, according to Chicago Police Department Spokesman Tom Ahern.

The incident started when officers approached a parked stolen vehicle on foot and at that time, the offenders drug an officer with the stolen vehicle.

An assisting police officer fired shots toward the vehicle, striking the offenders. The offenders then lost control, causing them to crash, police stated.

Two offenders were taken into custody and a weapon was also recovered on scene.

One officer was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both offenders were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center with gunshot wounds and listed in stable condition.

The incident remains under investigation by the Chicago Police Department and the Citizen Office of Police Accountability.
