    A Chicago police officer was shot Thursday evening in the Prairie District neighborhood, authorities said.

    One officer was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, with his condition stabilized, a fire official said. Chicago police transported the officer on their own from near 18th Street and Calumet Avenue, not in an ambulance. The shooting took place about 8:15 p.m.

    "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.
