- Two people were hospitalized after a shooting near the University of Illinois at Chicago this afternoon that involved an FBI agent who fired a weapon, authorities said.
The shooting occurred around 12:40 p.m. in the parking lot of a Jewel food store in the 1600 block of West Roosevelt Road in the Illinois Medical District, officials said.
One person was shot in the hip and taken in serious condition to Stroger Hospital, officials said. A second person was also injured and taken to the hospital, but no details were available.
The FBI agent was not injured, according to agency spokesman Joan Hyde. She could not say if the agent hit anyone or why the agent was in the area.
Actually, the feebs have a building right there, too. They are being close-mouthed about the whole thing in any event - no Camden-type speaking for them. Glad to hear the agent wasn't injured.
