Cop Home Invaded
An off-duty Chicago policeman was the victim of a home invasion late last night on the city's West Side, authorities said. There were reports of gunfire, but it wasn't confirmed anyone was hit.
The incident happened on the 5400 block of West Ohio Street in the South Austin neighborhood about 11:30 p.m. Two suspects fled the scene in a 2000 Chevy Suburban, reported to have damage to a passenger-side window.
An all-call bulletin issued over police scanners warned patrol officers to be cautious, saying the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. The bulletin also said to check hospitals for anyone coming in for gunshot wounds.
