- One person was killed and two others were wounded after an armed robbery attempt led to a police-involved shooting in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side late Thursday.
About 11:55 p.m., officers were on patrol near the 7900 block of South Justine when they saw two males in an alley approached by two others who announced a robbery, Chicago Police said in a statement.
The two robbers shot the two other males, then ran off as officers approached, police said. The officers pursued one male who turned and pointed a dark object in their direction. One officer then shot the male, police said.
One of the guys who was robbed later died. The one shot by the police lived - unfortunately. But a very good job by the Officers after coming upon an on-view a robbery and engage one of the killers. Nicely done.
