      One officer, a male who has been with the police department for 15 年份, was shot multiple times and remains in serious condition, Brown added.
        A police officer with the University of Illinois at Chicago was monitoring the Chicago Police radio and transported the injured officer in his squad car, “likely saving his life,” the superintendent said.
          We are asking prayers for this officer and his family and we are praying for a full recovery,” 布朗说.
          Officers did not fire their weapons during the incident and also recovered a gun from the scene, the superintendent added.
          犯罪嫌疑人, a convicted felon, sustained an injury to his wrist and is being treated at a separate hospital, 布朗说. There were no other injuries related to the incident, 他加了.
          Brown said charges against the suspect are pending.
          The incident is a reminder ofthe difficulties and dangersof working as an officer, 布朗说, 注意 “being a police officer in this country hasn’t been more dangerous in decades.
            Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who also attended the press conference outside the hospital where the officer is being treated, spoke about the alarming rise of domestic violence crimes.
            It is a huge public health and public safety issue, which we’re working diligently to address,” 她说. “But we have a long way to go as a society in understanding the danger to people in the household, the danger to our police, and the danger to ordinary residents when domestic violence happens inside of a household.
