Shooting in 015
A 20-year-old man was hospitalized in serious-to-critical condition this afternoon after being shot in a police-involved shooting in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, officials said.
Fire paramedics were called to the 5600 block of West Augusta Boulevard at 1:18 p.m., said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Richard Rosado.
Police officials said narcotics officers were conducting an investiation in the area when they noticed a man with a gun. The officers fired their weapons when the man refused to drop the gun.
The man sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, officials said. Initial reports indicated that the man may have been shot in the chest and hand, officials said.
