Foot chases in Chicago

This article reports that 1/3 of police shootings in Chicago between 2010 and 2015 occurred during foot chases often precipitated by a minor incident such as drinking in public. A suspect gun was recovered in 84% of the cases. Like most agencies, Chicago PD does not have a formal policy or procedure regulating foot pursuits.
