CHICAGO (CBS)– A Chicago police officer shot a person who police said tried to run away after being stopped in a stolen car in the South Austin neighborhood.

Chicago police said officers were trying to stop a vehicle wanted in connection with a suburban carjacking, in the 800 block of North Cicero Avenue. Police said a person inside the vehicle fled on foot and an officer discharged his weapon, striking the offender.

Police said the person shot by the officer was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. 

Police said a second person drove off in the vehicle police said was stolen. 

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating. 

The Chicago Fire Department said a 13-year-old was taken from that scene to Stroger Hospital. CBS 2 is working to confirm if that is connected to this case.
