CHICAGO – Chicago police are investigating a shooting by two officers that left one person dead.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says officers tried to pull over a stolen vehicle Thursday night in the South Shore neighborhood. He says the driver attempted to flee and in doing so swiped a marked police car and another vehicle.
Guglielmi says two officers then opened fire "onto the vehicle." A male whose age wasn't immediately known was struck and died at a hospital. A second person was in custody.
Guglielmi says police have questions about why the officers fired their weapons. He says they were wearing body cameras and the police vehicles had cameras.
The shooting came just after officers in another South Side neighborhood shot and injured a robbery suspect who police say refused orders to drop a weapon.
The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating both shootings.
