An off-duty Chicago police officer was shot in the face in a Tuesday afternoon road rage incident on the city’s Northwest Side, CPD said.

The 27-year-old woman was driving on the border of the Irving Park and Avondale neighborhoods when someone in front of her abruptly stopped their vehicle, which led to a crash near a local Jiffy Lube, police said. She was shot during a confrontation with another driver in the 3600 block of North Elston Avenue at about 3:10 p.m.

The officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Illinois Masonic Hospital, CPD Supt. David Brown said during a press conference. Brown said she was conscious throughout a conversation they had at the hospital.
