A Chicago police officer shot a 22-year-old man in the elbow during a foot pursuit in the South Side's Gresham neighborhood Monday night.
About 9:30 p.m., police responded to a call of a man with a gun in the 1300
block of West 76th Street, Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden said.
When officers arrived on the scene, they spotted a group of people standing on a
corner, he said.
A man standing in the group began running, and uniformed police officers gave
chase into a fenced area bordered by nearby row homes, Camden said.
During the chase, the man turned toward police with a gun his hand and an
officer fired in self-defense, Camden said.
The man was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in good condition, Camden said.
Police found a semiautomatic handgun at the scene
