Off Duty Shot
- An off-duty Chicago police officer was shot in both legs early Saturday morning the 9700 block of South Genoa Avenue, according to authorities.
Two off-duty police officers assigned to the Central police district were on the back porch of one of their homes in the 9700 block of South Genoa Avenue when gunfire came in their direction from the tracks, police said, citing preliminary information.
One of the officers, 38, was hit in both legs and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Police said there were at least two suspects they were looking for who may have fled west from the scene. It's unclear if the gunfire was directed at the officers.
A cop in his own yard, on his porch, and someone fires from the tracks at his house?
