Chicago police officers shot a man on Monday after he allegedly broke into a law enforcement facility using a fire escape, later stealing and pointing a gun at several officers, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The individual, who authorities claim broke into the department's Homan Square facility at noon, reportedly aimed a gun he found on a table at officers in the middle of a training session.

He was shot during the altercation and rushed to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, with an officer also involved in the incident taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center. According to the Chicago Fire Department, the officer did not suffer a gunshot wound.

So far, no one has reportedly died from the incident, but more information is yet to be released.

The odd news comes in the backdrop of an activist push to shut down the Homan Square facility, which has received substantial media attention for its controversial counterterrorism operations housed within a section of the building.

According to an investigation by The Guardian in 2015, claims levied at the compound include not placing arrestees in official booking data, beatings resulting in head wounds, shackling, denying attorney access, and holding people without legal counsel.

"Homan Square is definitely an unusual place," protester Brian Jacob Church told the outlet. "It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It's a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what's happened to you."
