A Chicago police officer shot a suspect who he says pointed a gun at him.

Police say they were responding to a call in the 3100-block of West 84th Place Wednesday night. Police say when they approached a group of men, one of them started to run.

Then, police say, he pointed a weapon at an officer, so the officer shot the suspect. He was taken into custody.

There was no word on his condition. No police were hurt.
