May 23, 2006 - A suspect was shot and wounded by Chicago police on the city's South Side overnight. Police said the man threatened officers with several guns.

Detectives pulled over a car near 68th and Calumet when a passenger in the back seat jumped out and pointed a rifle at them. Officers opened fire, but the suspect ran away. They chased him halfway down the block when he pointed another gun. Police opened fire again. He managed to getaway after the second round of gunfire. However, someone in the neighborhood gave officers a tip on where he was hiding
"We were searching in the area for a while when we received a phone call from a citizen said check a garbage can at 69th and Prairie. Looked in the garbage can, here's the offender. He's shot twice," said Pat Camden.

The suspect is hospitalized in serious condition. Officers recovered a rifle and two handguns at the scene.

Police are looking for two other men who were in the car with the gunman. They are also investigating the possibility that the gunman may be connected to a weekend shooting that killed one person critically wounded three others.
