Gunfire At Chicago Field Office

From yesterday's Chicago Tribune:

Chicago police are investigating a shooting incident at a Social Security office on the Southwest Side late this morning.

The shooting, in which there were no injuries, was the result of a security guard discharging his weapon in the office 8658 S. Sacramento Ave., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

The incident took place at 11:16 a.m., Mirabelli said.

Officials from Federal Protective Services, the agency assigned to guard federal facilities, said the guard was responding to a concern about a "confrontational and threatening individual," in the building, said Chris Ortman, a Federal Protective Services spokesman.

As the guard was responding, his gun discharged. Neither the suspect or the guard was injured as a result of the shooting, said Ortman.

    Very scary considering some customer or employee could have gotten shot for no good reason.
