Posted by wlpo on March 10, 2014

CHICAGO (AP) – A Chicago police officer helping execute a search warrant for drugs has been hit in the face by a ricocheting bullet.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says someone from inside the South Side home fired a shot last night that ricocheted and hit the officer between his eyes. The 34-year-old officer was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. McCarthy says the officer is “stable” but still has a fragment of the bullet lodged in his forehead.

Police are questioning six people who were inside the home when the shooting happened.
