32-year-old man was shot to death and a 21-year-old man was wounded in a shooting outside Bodi, a nightclub on the Near North Side.
Police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said the incident also involved a police shooting. About 3:50 a.m., officers were on patrol in the 800 block of North Orleans Street when they heard gunfire and saw a subject running from that location.
“The officer engaged the subject and, in fear for their lives, one officer discharged his duty weapon at the subject,’’ Sedevic said. “The subject fled and made good his escape.’’
Sedevic said police were not made aware of any injuries during the officer-involved shooting.
The police then found two victims, a 32-year-old who was dead on the scene and a 21-year-old shot and seriously wounded in the abdomen, Sedevic said. A weapon was also recovered on the scene.
The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating the officer-involved shooting, she said.
The man who survived lay face up on the ground, bandages on his wrist, with a woman crying over him and people looking on from north of the scene just a few feet away.
The 21-year-old was mostly motionless but tried to tilt his body occasionally and reached up to touch the woman’s neck while she waited on him.
