Report by the Chicago Tribune:
Four other men at the tavern were wounded in the exchange of gunfire. The victims were transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and Metro South Medical Center in Blue Island. None of their injuries were considered to be life-threatening, Ansari said.
Robbins Police Chief Roy Wells said the incident began as a verbal confrontation involving several men, although neither Wells nor Ansari were able to be specific about what provoked the dispute. The incident escalated when one of the men ran outside briefly, only to return with a pistol and began firing shots.
Gunfire was returned by a security person working in the bar at the time, officials said.
Sheriff’s police officers remained at the scene through Sunday, where an area of about one block surrounding the bar was cordoned off.
Cook County sheriff’s office personnel are handling investigation of the barroom incident, while Ansari said the Illinois State Police is handling the investigation of the Midlothian police officer’s actions.
Ansari would not identify the officer, while Midlothian police on Sunday declined to comment on the incident.
