CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Police shoot a home invasion suspect near the United Center.
It started as a well-being check in the 2000 block of West Washington on the near West Side.
CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos has more.
Chicago Police describe a scary situation at a three-flat.
Police opened fire on a man they say was part of a home invasion.
The incident happened just before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday evening at Hoyne and Washington.
Officers were responding to a well-being call, but police say they’re not sure who made that call.
When they arrived someone said there was a home invasion in progress.
At that point police heard a gunshot and entered the garden of a three-flat and saw a man dragging a 23-year-old woman into a bedroom.
Police say the man and woman did not know each other which is why they’re calling it a home invasion.
The man was shot in the stomach and taken to a hospital in stable condition.
The woman was shot in the arm and listed in serious condition.
The officer was placed on a 30-day administrative leave which is standard procedure.
