One Dead, Officers Safe
Chicago police shot and killed a male this morning following both a vehicle and foot chase in the city's Englewood neighborhood, authorities said.
An officer received a minor hand injury that was being treated at Holy Cross Hospital, according to fire department officials.
The shooting occurred at about 1:50 a.m. in the 7300 block of South Emerald Avenue, police said.
The Cook County medical examiner's office confirmed the shooting death, but had no other details on the victim.
A police spokeswoman couldn't say how the shooting occurred, saying a formal statement would be released later today.
A police source said the shooting appeared to have stemmed from a police pursuit, where a vehicle with several male occupants inside refused to pull over.
During the pursuit, the vehicle pulled over and the males bailed out of the vehicle, fleeing on foot.
Good job, Officers.
