An off-duty police officer was shot on the Near West Side of the city Wednesday night, according to the Chicago Police Department.
At approximately 9:16 p.m., the officer was confronted by multiple individuals who fired shots in the 2200 block of West Maypole Avenue. The officer suffered a gunshot wound to the arm but he was able to return fire. He was then transported to Stroger Hospital in good condition.
Photos from the scene Wednesday night show West Walnut Street — just around the corner from Maypole Avenue — cordoned off by police tape and a white SUV with a bullet hole on the left side of the windshield.
Police recovered a weapon at the scene but no arrests had been made as of Wednesday night. Detectives are investigating the shooting.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability is also investigating. The officer involved will be placed on routine administrative duties for 30 days, according to police.
