An off-duty Chicago Police officer returned fire at a suspect who shot and wounded the officer's friend outside a South Side tavern early Thursday. The officer chased down two suspects and found one of them reportedly hiding in a garbage can, reports the Sun-Times.

Two men are in custody after the incident, which happened about 2:30 a.m. in the 7500 block of South Wabash Avenue, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

An off-duty officer and a friend were outside when a man approached and fired shots, striking the officer's friend, Greer said. The officer returned fire, but did not hit anyone.
