CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police say an officer involved in a shooting that left one dead will be shifted to administrative duties.

Police said Sunday they received calls of an armed person and a home invasion around 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Authorities said “shots were exchanged” with police and a weapon was recovered. No officers were injured.

An Independent Police Review Authority spokesman tells The Chicago Tribune the male victim was pronounced dead inside a South Side home.

A police spokesman says the officer will be taken off the streets for at least 30 days, a new policy after the release of a video showing an officer fatally shooting a teenager 16 times.

The Tribune reports the shooting happened at an address listed as the childhood home of Bulls star Derrick Rose. WBBM-TV reports at least two other families have since lived there.
