VIDEO: Officer Wounded, Suspect Killed in Suburban Chicago Shootout

A police officer was wounded and a suspected shoplifter was killed in a shooting outside a south suburban Lansing strip mall Thursday afternoon.

The Lake County Coroner has identified the man killed in the incident as Warren Christian, 43, of East Chicago, Ind. His death was ruled a homicide.

Witnesses said the shootout took place after a man tried to steal meat from an Ultra grocery store near 160th and Torrence. Employees called police, and when officers tried to take the man into custody, police said the man grabbed an officer's gun.

"During the struggle the suspect shot the officer in the lower leg and continued to flee," said Fabian Newman, a spokesperson for the Village of Lansing.

A short chase covered several hundred yards before another police officer shot the suspect, ABC 7 Chicago reports.
