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.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden says the injured man was thought to be in his 20s. He adds that a semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the scene.

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