An officer was injured and a SWAT team responded to a scene Thursday morning after officers were involved in a shootout with a suspect who then barricaded himself inside a Pullman home on the Far South Side, according to Chicago police.

Officers were responding to a call of shots fired and attempted to curb a car matching the description of the suspects shooting in the area about 1:20 a.m. in the 900 block of East 104th Street, police said.
