Man tries to disarm cop at Belmont & Sheffield
The offender is in custody.
This morning's incident unfolded almost exactly 24 hours after two people were shot in a gang-related drive-by shooting at the same intersection.
The injured officer and his partner saw a fight break out on the street at 3:03 this morning and called for additional units to assist. But before back-up arrived, the officers found themselves overwhelmed as one man tried to take an officer's weapon.
An ambulance transported the injured officer to Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
