Shots Fired at CPD Officers in 2 Separate Stops

Chicago Police officers faced gunfire while on patrol in two separate incidents across the city early Saturday.

Just before 3 a.m., officers heard shots in the Little Village neighborhood and saw a car speeding away from the 2500 block of South Avers, police said.

As they followed the vehicle, someone inside it shot at the officers, police said. No one was hit.

The car eventually stopped and two people ran away. One was arrested, with charges pending Saturday morning, police said.

About 5:15 a.m., another pair of officers were performing a traffic stop in the 2000 block of East 71st Street in the South Shore neighborhood when they came under fire from an unknown source, police said.

Their squad car was shot, but no one was injured, police said. Area South detectives are investigating.
