One of those ones that pops up on the radar, then just as quickly, falls to the bottom of the news cycle:
- Chicago police said they wounded a male suspect in the leg who pointed a gun in their direction in the Englewood neighborhood early this morning.
Police said officers responded about 12:35 a.m. to a call of shots fired in an area known for gang and drug activity. In the vicinity of 5900 S. Princeton Ave. they saw a suspect with a gun in his hand who then turned and pointed his weapon at the officers, according to a police statement.
The officers both fired, hitting the suspect in the leg, police continued. He was arrested and taken to an area hospital. None of the officers was hurt.
Englewood, early morning, leg wound, gun recovered, nothing to see here folks. Move along. This should be bigger news once again, but it has been a pretty busy March across the city. Best wishes to the involved officers.
