- A Chicago police officer shot and killed a gunman who opened fire on two other people, and possibly other officers, this morning in the South Side's West Englewood neighborhood, authorities said.
No officers were hurt and one person was being questioned by authorities in the shooting that happened about 11:30 a.m. near 63rd Street and Honore Street.
According to preliminary information from law enforcement sources, a narcotics unit officer on surveillance in the area saw the gunman open fire on at least two other people across a vacant lot.
The officer responded to the shooting, announced his office and told the gunman to drop his weapon, sources said. The gunman kept firing, prompting the officer to shoot and kill the gunman, sources said.
Hopefully, this didn't interfere with today's CompStat meeting!
Well done Officer.
