A Chicago police officer was shot by a man in Roseland on Saturday night, officials said.

Chicago police spokesman Tom Ahern wrote on Twitter that the officer fired his gun and was stabbed in the 9900 block of South Wentworth Avenue.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Chief Curtis Hudson said the 29-year-old officer was stabbed multiple times before being taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Hudson said the officer had serious wounds, but was in stable condition.

Hudson said the 35-year-old man, who was apparently shot by police, was in critical condition as he was found at 9933 S. Was taken by ambulance from Wentworth Avenue to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Chicago’s civilian Office of Police Accountability said it would respond to the scene of the shooting.

COPA asked anyone with information to contact their office at 312-746-3609.
