    IL - Chicago police officer shot on Near South Side

    "A Chicago police officer has been shot at 18th and Calumet. Shot in the lower body, no info on condition," said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, in a Tweet.

    The officer was expected to recover after being shot in the leg, sources said.

    An attacker may also have been shot, a source said.

    News that the suspect was drinking near Soldier Field when the officer approached him. The suspect then pulled out a gun and shot the officer in the leg. The suspect was shot and killed, though it is not clear if it is the injured officer who returned fire.

    Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, who has just returned from Washington D.C., has been briefed on the shooting.
