A man is killed in a small Chicago police shooting


Pensacola, Fl

The man shot by Chicago police has been identified and killed in Little Village on Friday.

The Cook County Medical Examination Bureau said Saturday morning that Mark A. Nevarez, 25, was killed when Chicago police officers heeded a shooting call in the Southwest Side neighborhood.

Police said officers responded to the call at West 24th Street and South Hamlin Avenue around 12:30 p.m. When they arrived near the scene, they said they saw a gray Ford Focus driving away.

The officers tried to stop the car, which hit a pole.

The police then said that the driver, who was armed, got out of the car and fled. A man and a woman were seen running from the car.

During the chase, the officers fired several shots, hitting the man in the buttocks, officials said.

Police said two rifles were found at the scene. Police said a pistol was found where the Nevarez was shot, and a semi-automatic pistol was found in the back seat of a Ford Focus, where a second man was detained.

Police said the woman who fled the scene was still at large.

Officials said all evidence would be handed over to the Civilian Police Accountability Office.

Officials said a man sustained a head injury from the initial shooting, which prompted police to respond. He is said to be in good condition in the hospital.

Officials said that the officers involved in the incident were not subjected to gunfire, but had been taken for surveillance.

Currently, details of this incident, including the extensive use of a force investigation, are being investigated by COPA.

The CPD said any officers involved would be assigned to routine administrative duties for a period of 30 days.

The accident is still under investigation.
