CHICAGO - A person was shot by police on the Near West Side this afternoon, authorities said. This is the second officer involved shooting in the city in as many days.

The incident reportedly happened shortly after 3:00 p.m. Friday afternoon in the 2100 block of W. Adams Street on the Near West Side, a little less than two blocks west of the United Center.

At this time it is unclear what initially led to the encounter, but according to police spokesman Tom Ahern, shots were fired by police and a weapon was recovered on scene.

Neither the identity nor the age nor the condition of the person who was shot is known at this time, but the person was taken to Stroger Hospital for treatment.

We'll continue to update this post as we know more.

This shooting is the second officer involved shooting in as many days after a 40-year-old man was shot last night during a struggle with police in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the city's south side.
