A Chicago Police officer has been shot during a foot chase on the South Side tonight.
The South Chicago District tactical unit officer responded to some sort of "juvenile disturbance" when he encountered an individual in the area of 84th Street and Kingston Avenue, police said, citing preliminary information. It happened about 10:30 p.m.
Shortly thereafter, the individual ran away from the officer and the two ended up in a nearby backyard, police said.
The individual opened fire on the officer, striking him in the chest, above his bulletproof vest, police said, adding that the officer might've fired back.
