The officers were
in the Back of the Yards neighborhood when two vehicles pulled
up and people inside opened fire at around 9 p.m. local, the
Chicago Police Department said.
The policemen returned fire as one was hit in the arm and hip
and the other was wounded in the back, the department added.
Both of the officers were in a stable condition, police said.
"They are doing quite well, thank God," Chicago Police
Superintendent Eddie Johnson told reporters.
Investigators recovered two weapons at the scene and were
questioning three male suspects, the department said.
