The suspect wanted in a shooting of a Chicago police officer, and an earlier shooting of a woman in the Fulton River District, was shot by police Saturday afternoon after a manhunt that started in West Englewood.

Blackman fled the scene after the incident and was considered armed and unsafe, according to Guglielmi.

Police said the suspect who allegedly shot him, 45-year-old Michael Blackman, is listed in critical condition.

Johnson said Blackman's arrest history dates to 1991 for burglary, battery, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and possession of a controlled substance charges. He has not been charged in either shooting.

The wounded officer, whose name wasn't released, is 40 years old and a 16-year Chicago police veteran in the fugitive apprehension team, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said during a news conference at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the officer was treated.

The officer underwent surgery and was hospitalized in stable condition.

The officer, who has not yet been identified, was shot twice in the groin area, said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford, according to ABC Chicago station WLS. He lost almost a third of his blood despite applying a tourniquet on himself, Guglielmi tweeted.
