CHICAGO, IL – An off-duty Chicago police officer was arrested Tuesday after he became combative with on-duty officers responding to a shooting at his Far Southwest Side home, police said. The officer could face aggravated battery charges, police said.

The shooting happened about 4:45 a.m. in the officer’s home in the 10700 block of South Troy Street, according to police. The victim, who was wounded in the head, was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The officer’s weapon was used in the shooting, said a law enforcement source, who indicated the victim was a friend of the officer’s. The officer has been stripped of his police powers.

    Doesn't look to be in the officer's favor at this point. No matter the details of the incident that brought LE to the scene why be combative? Something, a lot of something, is missing and/or not right here.

    Gino thanks for the info, I still think it's too early to comment on this especially with such limited information. My prayers will be with all involved and their families.

    Gino, I would have to agree with you. Thanks for the information that you have shed on this incident. It helps to understand why the officer was combative...... he is freaking out over this very sad and unfortunate incident. Please people, If you are drinking....... put your guns away. This should have never happened and now many peoples lives will be forever affected. My prayers also go out to all of the friends, families and departments of the involved parties.
