Chicago Police say 2 officers shot and wounded

One officer was shot in the arm and hip and the other in the back, Johnson said. Officials said the injuries weren't life threatening.

May 01-Aldermen on Monday called for the Chicago Police Department to do more to help police officers contemplating suicide in response to the stresses of the job. Officers blocked off the cross streets between the shooting scene and Stroger Hospital to allow the officers' ambulances get there quickly on Ashland Avenue. Kevin Graham, the president of the local Lodge 7 police union, spoke with both officers and said one of the officers is in "a lot of pain".

Two on-duty Chicago officers were shot and wounded when two vehicles pulled up beside them on Tuesday and began "firing indiscriminately" in what is thought to be a targeted attack, the Chicago Police Department said.

Police said the officers were shot during an encounter, after seeing someone inside a van shooting at another vehicle. A manhunt was underway Wednesday.

Authorities say police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was headed to the hospital.

"They were firing at the officers", he said in a news conference early Wednesday.

The officer involved has already been dismissed, according to reports.

"They weren't messing around", one witness said.

The shooting happened near 43rd and Ashland.

Police said this was the only area of the city where rifles styled after AR-15s and AK-47s were regularly used, a menacing new development in the gang fights. Back of the Yards has been embroiled in a violent gang war for several years now, which has recently been escalated by the use of assault-style rifles. Edward Burke, 14th, said studies have found officers also face "serious legal issues" and pressure from the public and the media, yet there are just three full-time counselors on staff at the Police Department. "The Dunkin" Donuts lady was like "What the (expletive) are they shooting for?' My mind was like: 'Holy s--!"

Minutes later, a procession of police vehicles raced north.
