A suspect allegedly sped off after a traffic stop on the far South Side and tried to run down officers. It happened after midnight. Investigators say the offender took off as a Chicago police squad tried to pull him over. He fled, lost control, and hit a light pole at 127th and State. Officers say he then tried to run them down.

Police say he aimed a gun at them. An officer opened fire as the man fled, but he was not hit. The suspect is in custody.
