Suspect shot? Eisenhower completely shut down for hours:
- Early reports had indicated that the officer struck by a car was a bike officer, but all officers involved operated cars, said Chicago police spokesman John Mirabelli.
After hitting the officer, the suspect's vehicle fled and entered the Eisenhower Expressway, where it traveled east in the westbound lanes, police said. Officers in another vehicle attempted to arrest the suspect, resulting in a crash, Avila said.
When both officers stepped out of the car, the vehicle "moved in the direction of [one] officer" and his partner fired, Avila said.
The articles are unclear if the driver was also apprehended. Best wishes to the Officer, who is said to be resting at home.
