Man shot by police in the Pullman neighborhood, in critical condition

CHICAGO - Chicago Police reported that on-duty officers shot and critically wounded an armed man Friday night in the Pullman neighborhood.

The incident occurred at approximately 5:38 p.m. in the 11200 block of S. Langley in the Pullman neighborhood on the city's far south side.



Police are reporting that officers were called to investigate a disturbance of a man with a gun on the above block and, when they arrived, they indeed found a man with a gun. Police further said the man pointed one of the pistols at the officers and officers opened fire.

While Police did not clarify how many officers fired, all of their released information describes the shooting in plural.

The man was reportedly shot multiple times and officers immediately began to render aid and apply tourniquet(s) to the man.

Neither the man's identity nor age has been released, but he was taken to Christ Medical Center by the Chicago Fire Department where he was initially reported to be in critical condition. Later, Police said the man was in serious condition.

Detectives recovered two pistols and a knife at the scene, and they continue to investigate.

As with all officer involved shootings in Chicago, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability will investigate the use of force.
