3 Chicago cops shot outside police station during arrest, suspect also hit, authorities say
[FoxNews] Police said the suspect was shot after firing upon officers.

Three Chicago police officers were shot Thursday morning while taking a violent carjacking suspect into custody outside a police station on the city’s West Side, authorities said.

The suspect also was shot after the gunfire erupted around 9:40 a.m. in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood outside the 25th District police station, Chicago Police Supt. David Brown told reporters outside Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

The suspect fired multiple gunshots at police during the arrest, Brown said, striking several officers.

One officer suffered a gunshot wound to his chin and neck, and also was hit in his bulletproof vest, Brown said. Police later added that the officer underwent surgery and was on a breathing tube at Illinois Masonic Medical Center. As of Thursday night, he was said to be in stable condition.

Other officers were getting treatment at Loyola Hospital: one was struck in the vest; another suffered a gunshot wound to his hip; and two other officers suffered chest pains. Those officers later were released.

If he lived, he wasn't shot enough.

#3 The suspect was probably firing for just a few seconds. So he was mostly peaceful.
