A Chicago police officer has been relieved of police powers after shooting three people at a bowling alley in south suburban Blue Island on Tuesday.
It was not clear what sparked the attack, which happened shortly before midnight after a fight at the Burr Oak Bowl, 3030 W. 127th St., according to Ephraim Eaddy, spokesman for the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, and Chicago police.
Two of the people shot were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where they remain and where their conditions have been stabilized, Blue Island police Chief Geoffery Farr said in a statement.
A third drove himself to a hospital after suffering a graze wound and was later discharged, Farr said.
The officer, who was off-duty at the time and still in the probationary period for new hires, was taken into custody, Chicago police said.
A second, unidentified, person was taken into custody at the scene, Farr said.
The shooting was being investigated by COPA and the Blue Island Police Department.
COPA urged anyone with information to call 312-746-3609.
