Missed this one. but SWAT did what they're supposed to do, even under-equipped:
- A state correctional officer was wounded by police after an eight-hour standoff in Bronzeville ended with an exchange of gunfire early Thursday, authorities said.
The man, a former Chicago police officer, was shot around 3 a.m. after firing at officers who surrounded a home in the 4800 block of South Calumet Avenue, police said. He was taken to a hospital but his condition was not known. Charges were pending.
The standoff began around 8 p.m. Wednesday when the man pulled a gun on sheriff's officers who were trying to serve a warrant stemming from a domestic assault, according to authorities. The home was surrounded by a SWAT team and other officers while nearby homes were evacuated, police said.
