Sun Times "Reporting"
A 19-year-old man was shot by Chicago Police Sunday morning on the South Side's Englewood neighborhood after police said he pointed a weapon at an officer.
The "offender" was shot by an officer in the 6400 block of South Wood Street about 11:10 a.m., according to police News Affairs. He was taken with a gunshot wound to the leg to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in good condition.
Tactical officers working in the Englewood District were conducting a directed mission in the area of West 63rd Street and South Honore Street when they attempted to approach a man believed to have a weapon, according to a Chicago Police release.
It would seem that the Tact officers were dead on in their assessment that the suspect had a weapon, seeing as how they shot him after the offender pointed it at them and it was subsequently recovered. Good job all around.
