3 police officers shot, 1 attacker killed on West Side: Sources – Chicago Tribune

Three Chicago police officers were shot and suffered what a police spokesman said were non-life-threatening injuries and sources said an attacker was shot to death in the Homan Square neighborhood Monday night.

Three officers were shot in the 3700 block of West Polk Street but were being treated at Stroger Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, said Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. The officers may have been involved in an investigation of three people before the shooting incident.

One officer suffered a gunshot wound to the back, one suffered a gunshot wound to the foot and one was shot in the chest area, but possibly in a bullet-proof vest, a little before 10 p.m., according to sources. One officer was in serious-to-critical condition, a source said.

The Harrison District tactical officers were involved in a confrontation in the courtyard of an apartment building, one source said, citing preliminary reports.
