An off-duty Chicago police officer shot and killed a man who was allegedly trying to use a van to break into the officer's garage.

It happened Saturday morning in the 7900- block of South Jeffrey.

Police said the officer heard a crashing noise and found the man trying to crash a van into the garage door.

Police said the officer identified himself but instead of stopping, the man reportedly tried to run down the officer and that's when he was shot.

Police have not released the man's name.
