A 15-year-old boy was fatally shot late Sunday by a police officer, marking the third police-involved shooting since Friday.
Chicago Police said in a statement that officers were responding to shots in the Englewood neighborhood just before 11 p.m. when they spotted an individual running down the street. Authorities got out and chased him down an alley when the teen allegedly turned and pointed a gun at them on the 6600 block of South Sangamon.
One officer opened fire, police said, and shot the 15-year-old boy identified by family as Michael Westley. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he died. No officers were injured.
Police said they recovered a .40 caliber handgun from the scene and a revolver on the teen’s waistband.
“There’s been an ongoing gang feud in this area, and that’s what the gang officers were responding to in the first place,” Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden said.
