Chicago police shot and wounded a man Sunday night they say pointed a gun at officers.

Officers responded to the 2100-block of North Laramie to a report of a man with a gun. When police arrived, they say they ordered the man to drop the weapon, but he did not. Instead, he allegedly pointed the gun at police.

Officers shot him. The man was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital. No police officers were hurt.
