CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police say officers fatally shot a man when they saw him firing a gun at another person.

Police say officers repeatedly ordered the man to drop his weapon when they saw him Friday night in the West Englewood neighborhood. Police said in statement released Saturday that the man refused and kept shooting at another man.

That’s when officers fired their guns and killed the suspect. His name and age were not released.

The person the man was shooting is a 26-year-old man who is being treated at a hospital for gunshot wounds in his abdomen. He is in stable condition.

The officers involved in the shooting will be placed on routine administrative duty for 30 days while the incident is investigated by the Independent Police Review Authority.
