Man critically injured in Chicago police shooting was out walking dog before brandishing gun: COPA

Pullman CPD shooting captured on bodycam, COPA said
CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Civilian Office of Police Accountability provided more details Monday about what led up to a police shooting Friday night that left a man critically injured in Pullman.

COPA said CPD officers responded to the area near 11200 S. Langley Ave. for a report of a person with a gun after a dispute between two neighbors.

Chicago police officers told the suspect, who was walking a dog at the time, of the reason for their response, and asked him to lift his shirt, COPA said.

The officers saw what appeared to be the handle of a firearm and asked the man to tie up his dog, according to COPA.

The man fled a short distance before brandishing a firearm, COPA said.

Multiple officers then shot at the man, hitting him.

The Chicago Fire Department said an adult was critically injured in the shooting. They were taken to Christ Hospital.

A Chicago police spokesman said no officers were injured in the incident. The spokesman said the shooting happened around 5:40 p.m. near Langley Playground.

Three weapons were recovered at the scene: two guns and a knife, police said.
People who live nearby said they heard seven to eight gunshots and then the sound of a woman screaming. That woman was a witness to the shooting, they said, not involved in it.

COPA confirmed bodycam captured the initial interaction and shooting.
