A man was shot by Chicago police in the South Chicago neighborhood early Saturday morning after taking off from a traffic stop with three kids in the car, according to authorities.

Police pulled the car over on South South Chicago Avenue near Harbor Avenue and had the man and a passenger outside the car when the driver fought with police and made it back into the car, authorities said.

The man had a gun in his waistband, police said, and kept reaching for it while trying to speed away from police. The kids were in the backseat of the car the entire time, police said. 

An officer jumped in the car, on the passenger side, while it was moving and shot the man in his abdomen, Fraternal Order of Police Spokesman Patrick Camden said. The car, a maroon-colored Jaguar, came to rest on the curb at the corner of South South Chicago and Harbor, near a viaduct. 

The man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center but his condition wasn't available. 

The officers were "a little banged up," police said, and also taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center. Police didn't consider the wounds serious.

A squad car heading to the scene was involved in a car accident at 95th Street and Ewing Avenue after officers called "10-1" over their radio, which is an alert used when an officer is in distress.

The extent of their injuries wasn't immediately known and they too were checked out at Advocate Christ Medical Center. Check back for more information.
