CHICAGO — Two men were taken into custody, two guns were recovered and another teen was found shot during an Englewood police chase Tuesday, officials said.

Police responded to the sound of gunshots near West 59th Street and South Princeton Avenue about 4:30 p.m., said Fraternal Order of Police Spokesman Pat Camden.

The officers saw a young man running with a gun. He turned, shooting at police, and police fired back, but did not hit the gunman, Camden said. The man was taken into custody with his weapon.

Police found a person shot near West 59th Street And South Princeton Avenue, who they believed was hit by the shots they heard fired earlier, Camden said.

An 18-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital from the area in critical condition about 4:44 p.m., fire officials said.

Officers saw another individual running from the scene with a gun, who ran to the intersection of West 58th Street and South Shields Avenue. He also pointed a gun at police, and they fired at him, Camden said.

The man was not hit, and was also arrested with his weapon, Camden said.

The two gunmen taken into custody appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s. The entire incident appeared to be gang-related, Camden said.
