The Chicago Police Department says a police officer is in "critical condition" after he was shot during an "active shooter incident" at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center in central Chicago.

The officer is in "critical condition but receiving excellent care," according to police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

He said that there were reports of "multiple victims," and "at least one possible offender is shot," but further details were not immediately released.

Police said that at about 3:30 p.m. local time there were reports of shots fired near the hospital. Guglielmi said officers are doing a "methodical search" of the hospital.
