Cop Wounded - Will Be OK
A Chicago police officer was shot in the leg and a suspected robber was fatally wounded Monday night at a Family Dollar store in the West Englewood neighborhood, officials said.
Shots were fired by police at about 8:35 p.m. to stop an apparent robbery at the store in the 6300 block of S. Ashland, police officials said.
Witnesses said they heard at least a dozen gunshots.
"I saw the cashiers running out," recalled Kevin Pride, 51 of Englewood, who was outside a nearby store during the incident. "They were screaming. Then police ran in. And then you the shots."
