Investigators looking into the shooting of a Chicago police officer finish their work in the 8500 block of South Kingston Avenue. The officer was shot about 10:45 p.m., after responding to a "juvenile disturbance," police said, citing preliminary reports. Officers tried to stop four people for curfew violations and one of them fled into an alley, according to police News Affairs. The officer chased the person into a front yard, where the person turned around and fired shots, striking the officer in the upper body, the police statement said. The gunman fled as the officer fired back, sources said.
