CPD Shooting Overnight
- A man was shot by a Chicago police officer during a police investigation into a suspected "gun house" Saturday evening in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.
Gang Investigations Officers responded about 9 p.m. to the first block of North Kilpatrick after police received a tip that an auto repair/car wash business was storing weapons, according to a statement from Chicago Police.
When the officers entered the business, they saw a man who matched officers' suspect description, police said. When he saw the officers, the man ran away and, as he did, he pointed a handgun at an officer.
One of the officers then opened fired, striking the man in the leg and arm, police said. No officers were injured in the shooting.
At least five guns were recovered, so the information was good. Was it someone from the hood who realized that the dealers in heartache and death aren't the police, but rather the criminals?
