Chicago shooting: 1 injured, 5 in custody, 2 guns recovered after police-involved shooting on North Central Park Avenue, CPD says

CHICAGO (WLS) — Five people are in custody and a man is left injured after a police-involved shooting on Chicago’s Northwest Side Saturday.

What allegedly began as a traffic stop in Humboldt Park, quickly escalated.

Around 5 p.m., officers claim they encountered a vehicle in the 600-block of North Central Park Avenue that had allegedly fled from a traffic stop earlier.

The driver of the vehicle pulled into a garage and an armed offended allegedly exited the vehicle, according to Chicago police.

“The officers immediately exited the vehicle, at which time the driver of this vehicle exits with a gun in his hand,” said Deputy Chief Ron Pontecore, with the Chicago Police Department.

Officers claim they then followed the armed person onto the back porch of a residence.

After repeated orders to drop the weapon, an officer discharged theirs, striking the person, officials said.

A man was taken to Stroger Hospital in fair condition, police said.

Two CPD officers were taken to Rush Medical Center for evaluation but were not shot, officials said.

Three people who were also inside the car at the time are now in custody, as well as another person inside the home. Two guns were also recovered.

It is unclear if the man had pointed his gun at the officers. The deputy chief said that’s a part of the investigation.

CPD said the specifics of the incident, including the comprehensive use of force, are being investigated by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability with the departments full cooperation.

The officers involved will be place on routine administrative duties for a period of 30 days.
