Chicago cops shoot armed man in Pullman neighborhood: police

Chicago police officers shot an armed suspect Friday night on the South Side.

Around 6 p.m., officers responded to a report of a man with a gun fighting with a neighbor at 112th and Langley in the Pullman neighborhood, according to a statement from the Civilian Office of Police Accountability.

When police arrived, the man was walking his dog and officers told him why they had been called and asked him to raise his shirt, COPA said.

Officers then saw "what appeared to be the handle of a firearm," and asked him to tie up his dog, at which point the man fled, according to COPA.

Police followed him briefly and when they saw him draw his gun, multiple officers opened fire, COPA said.

Officers immediately rendered life-saving aid, police said. The suspect was then taken in serious condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Two guns and a knife were recovered at the scene, police said. No officers were injured.
