- An investigation is underway into a shooting involving a Chicago police officer that left a man wounded in the Hermosa neighborhood Thursday night, officials said tonight.
At about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a call of shots fired in an alley on the 2200 block of North Keystone Avenue, police said. When they arrived officers noticed a car running with the motor running and with shell casings on the ground, police said.
They noticed a door to a nearby garage was open and saw a man crouching inside, police said.
When an officer entered the garage and announced that he was police, a man lunged at the officer while holding a shiny metallic object in his hand, police said. The officer fired his weapon and struck the man, police said.
