CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago police officer was stabbed and the suspect shot during an incident Saturday, according to police.
CPD said they are responding to a police-involved shooting near 99th and Wentworth in Roseland on the South Side.
A 29-year-old officer suffered stab wounds and was transported to Christ Hospital in serious but stable condition. A 35-year-old man is said to be in critical condition at the University of Chicago Medical Center with a gunshot wound, officials said.
According to police, officers were responding to a call of a man entering a home and holding a woman hostage in a bedroom with a knife. Officers were able to safely remove the woman and continued verbal direction, which police said the offender refused to comply with.
That's when an officer deployed his taser, which was ineffective, officials said.
The suspect then lunged at police with the knife, stabbing an officer in his shoulder and head. At that police, the officer fired his weapon, shooting the suspect, police added.
COPA is investigating with the full cooperation of the Chicago Police Department, CPD said.
The officer(s) involved will be placed on routine administrative duties for a period of 30 days.
