A drug suspect was shot by police when he tried to run over a district sergeant and other officers following an undercover drug buy from the suspect's car late Wednesday in the city's Gage Park neighborhood, police said.
Although a Fire Department spokesman said the man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious-to-critical condition, police said his injuries didn't appear life-threatening.Details of the man's age and injuries were not being released by police this morning.
One officer was taken to the hospital for treatment and is expected to recover. Best wishes for a speedy return.
