Just praying for all involved. Especially for the Officer. It’s good that he’s responsive. That’s hopeful.

Need a good investigation (preferably by federal authorities) to determine who fired the bullets that went into the officer and into the one, or two, innocent bystanders.

I wonder if stricter federal gun control laws could have prevented this incident from occurring.... ::rolls eyes::

I wish the officer well and for a speedy/full recovery. The two suspects do NOT get that sentiment.

Gun control doesn't work in Chicago, California, New York and Baltimore. Police are not supported in any of these cities. Prayers for wounded officer.

I thought guns were illegal in Chicago, so surely this couldn’t have happened...making guns illegal will only take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens not criminals, this is proof. Praying for the officer’s family and friends.
