A person was shot during an exchange of gunfire with Chicago police Tuesday in Rogers Park on the North Side.
Officers conducting a follow up investigation on a domestic violence incident stopped a suspect’s vehicle about 4:56 p.m. in the 6900 block of North Ravenswood Avenue, according to preliminary information from Chicago police.
A male got out of the vehicle and allegedly fired shots at the officers, police said. The officers returned fire, striking the male.
He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in serious-to-critical condition, according to Chicago fire officials.
No officers were hurt, according to police, but fire officials said four people were sent to hospitals in good condition with minor injuries.
Police said officers recovered a gun from the scene.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating the use of force.
The officers involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative duty for 30 days as COPA investigates.
