Two off-duty Chicago police officers were shot early Friday in what the department described as an ambush.
The shooting happened at about 3:30 a.m. at a restaurant in the city's Lawndale neighborhood, WBBM-TV reports. While an officer was waiting in line, he noticed a man dropped a gun from his waistband.
Before the oficer could react, the man retrieved the gun and opened fire. Both officers were struck by the gunfire; one officer was wounded in the leg, and the other had a bullet graze his head.
Once the gunman stopped firing, he dropped his gun again and fled the restaurant. An undercover officer was able to apprehend him, and a firearm was recovered.
Police Supt. David Brown described the shooting as an ambush. The officers did not exchange gunfire with the suspect.
The officers were taken to the hospital, and their injuries weren't considered life-threatening.
