CHICAGO – Police in Chicago responded to a domestic violence call at Garfield Park Sunday night. Upon arrival they were fired upon before returning fire at a male suspect.
One officer had an injury consistent with a graze wound from a round and another officer suffered a leg injury — not believed to be caused by a bullet — and reported chest pains, police said.
The unidentified suspect did not survive.
A 24-year-old pregnant woman was found shot in the abdomen, reports CBS Chicago. She was taken to a hospital and listed in stable condition. The condition of her baby was not immediately available.
Police said they recovered a weapon at the scene of the shooting. They believe the man shot and killed by their officers is also responsible for shooting the pregnant woman during the domestic dispute.
