Chicago police officers shot a man in the city’s Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side early Sunday.

At around 3:07 a.m., uniformed officers saw a vehicle commit a traffic violation and conducted a stop in the alley of the 2800 block of N. Mulligan Ave., according to a statement from Chicago police.

As the officers approached the car, authorities said they saw a man in the backseat armed with a gun.

An officer and a sergeant discharged their weapons, officials said, striking the man.

He was taken to Loyola Hospital in stable condition, according to police.

No officers were injured in the incident and a weapon was recovered at the scene, authorities said.

The officers involved will be placed on routine administrative duties for 30 days, police said, as is customary in all officer-involved shootings.

The Independent Police Review Authority, which handles all police-involved shootings, continues to investigate.
