A Chicago police officer and a suspect were both shot during an exchange of gunfire in the city's Englewood neighborhood, officials said Sunday afternoon.

Police Supt. David Brown says three officers were in an unmarked squad car at approximately 2 p.m. Sunday when they attempted to stop another vehicle.

The driver of that vehicle pulled into a dead end street, then exited the vehicle and began firing shots at police, according to Brown.

One of the officers was struck twice by gunfire, and was taken to the hospital by their partners in serious, but stable, condition, NBC Chicago reports.

The suspect was wounded an taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
