Chicago Police say 2 officers shot and wounded

Aldermen Thompson and Lopez released a joint statement late Tuesday night: "We are praying this evening for the two officers shot tonight and their families, and for the safety of those officers who are continuing the search for the offenders".

Police say a Pennsylvania woman fractured her infant's skull and tried to blame the injuries on her 6-year-old son. Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham said he met briefly with both officers, the station adds. A few of the officers stopped to talk to the women before they went back into the hospital.

Two police officers were shot on the South Side of Chicago Tuesday night in what police believe was a targeted attack.

It remained unclear whether there was more than one shooter or if the participants knew they were shooting at officers, Guglielmi said, but investigators were "operating under the impression" that the officers' tactical vests would have been visible to those outside their unmarked van. "If they will fire at police officers like that, then they have no type of thought process in terms of firing at other citizens in this great city".

Officers recovered two guns and were still looking for others involved.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says the officers appear to have been targeted by their attackers as they were conducting an investigation.

China's Uber worth $50 billion after raising more cash
Uber China, a regional subsidiary of the ride-hailing service, merged with Didi in a deal worth $35 billion last August. It also employed Charlie Miler, former Uber engineer as the transport safety and security expert at the division.

The shooting unfolded in the crime-ridden Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Police recovered multiple weapons from the scene of the crime.

As a city, we must hold police officers to the highest standards because we count on them to look out for us, to keep us safe. Police worry they could get stuck at a desk or lose their jobs if they seek counseling, he said.

Police said this was the only area of the city where rifles styled after AR-15s and AK-47s were regularly used, a menacing new development in the gang fights. The second was shot in the back. The incident occurred around 9:15 p.m. near 43rd and Ashland. The officer is on leave while police investigate, but the boy's family wants him fired and criminally charged, their lawyer said.

Minutes later, a fast-moving procession of police vehicles activated their lights and sirens and drove southbound.
