Arrests in Shots Fired
- Two people were taken into custody after shots were fired at Chicago police officers early Wednesday in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
Officers in a squad car responded to a call about gunfire in the 2400 block of West 34th Street around 2:10 a.m. when they saw a group of attackers who then fired shots in their direction, said Officer Ron Gaines, a police spokesman.
The bullets damaged the squad car, but no officers or anyone else were injured.
A weapon was recovered at the scene, Gaines said.
Eddie immediately suspended the officers for their own safety. De-Escalante said there is nothing in the orders that says officers may use a squad car as cover.
