- A Chicago Police officer shot a male wielding a baseball bat early Monday in the North Side Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Officers working the CTA Special Employment beat were on patrol when a citizen told them there was a large fight in the 1500 block of North Clybourn, according to a statement from Chicago Police.
The officers responded and saw a male striking another male lying on the ground with a baseball bat, police said.
The officers announced their office and told the male to drop the bat, and he continued striking the victim, police said. One of the officers discharged his weapon, striking the male armed with the bat.
The second shooting in two days:
- A Chicago Police officer shot a robbery suspect who pointed a gun at authorities early Sunday in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood.
The shooting happened at 3:45 a.m. in the 2300 block of West 21st Street, police said.
The male, whose age wasn’t released, was taken to a hospital for treatment. His condition was not known. No one else was injured.
And someone commented that there was another shooting incident on the west side a few days back where someone shot at the police. Officers fired back but no was hit. We can't find media coverage on that one. Stay safe boys and girls - summer is definitely here.
