Chicago police wounded a man late Wednesday night in the West Woodlawn neighborhood on the city's South Side.
Officers from the Grand Crossing police district were "conducting an investigation" in the area of the 6600 block of South Langley Avenue at about 9:45 p.m., where a person was shot earlier in the evening, according to a brief statement from Chicago police.
No officers were injured in the incident.
When the officers tried interviewing a man walking down the street, police said he pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officers.
One of the officers fired his weapon, hitting the man in the lower back, according to police.
Police said the 23-year-old man was taken to an area hospital for treatment. He was expected to survive.
It was the third night in a row that Chicago police have fired on armed individuals. On Monday, police fired on an armed man near Chicago and Keeler avenues on the city's West Side. On Tuesday, Gresham District officers wounded a man they said fatally shot a 31-year-old man.
Earlier Wednesday evening, a police officer wounded a teenager who shot him in the knee on the city's Far South Side.
