CHICAGO (AP) – The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating an officer-involved shooting in Chicago that left a man in critical condition.
Chicago police said in a news release Sunday that officers responded to a disturbance on Chicago’s West Side around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. The officers saw a man with a handgun who started to run. The man allegedly pointed the handgun at the officers, and one of the officers fired, striking the man.

Camden says the man was taken in critical condition to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.
