Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson will meet the officers at the hospital.
A witness who declined to give her name said she was waiting for a CTA bus on Ashland when she saw a wave of police cruisers speeding to the scene.
“They weren’t messing around,” she said. “I’ve seen shootings but I’ve never seen anything like that.”
The shooting drew a massive police response as detectives investigated just past the entrance to the Old Union Stockyards.
