ROGERS PARK — A man was wounded in a shootout with Chicago police Tuesday in Rogers Park, officials said.

Just before 5 p.m., officers were following up on a previous domestic incident when they attempted to pull over a driver in the 6900 block of North Ravenswood Avenue, police said in a statement.

A man got out of the car and fired at police, police said.

Officers fired back, hitting the man multiple times, Ald. Maria Hadden (49th) said in an update to constituents shared on Facebook.

The man was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, police said. He was in serious condition, Hadden wrote.

Deputy Police Chief Randall Darling said at the scene no officers were hit by gunfire during the incident, but a “few” were being medically evaluated for potential injuries. A gun was found at the scene, Darling said.

Officials from the Civilian Office of Police Accountability are responding to the scene to investigate, agency officials tweeted.

Hadden said she expects more information on the incident to be released and there should be “adequate video footage” of the shooting based on the area where it occurred.

“I know this shakes a lot of people up,” Hadden said in the Facebook video. “But please know we’ll get as much information as possible and keep you updated.”
