“Three officers sustained dog bites, and an officer discharged their weapon striking the canine,” police added.
The officers were taken to a local hospital in good condition. The conditions of the dogs are not currently known.
Chicago officers made one arrest as a result of the incident.
“One female offender is in custody,” Chicago police said. “Charges are pending.”
