MARION, Ill. (AP) - The police chief in the southern Illinois city of Marion says 1 of his officers has been shot and wounded while responding to a call of shots fired at a residence.
Chief Gene Goolsby said Monday that the officer was injured along with two other people. The chief says someone inside the home was shot before police arrived. He says the suspect shot at authorities.
There was no immediate information about the severity of the injuries, but victims were taken to a nearby hospital.
Last week, two Illinois State Police troopers were wounded in a shootout while serving a search warrant in neighboring Carbondale. Both officers have been released from the hospital.

WILLIAMSON COUNTY-- For the the second time in five days, local police officers have been injured in a shooting. This time, it's a member of the Marion police department. Illinois State Police are investigating the shooting.

Police say the shooting occurred at 408 South Van Buren Street, on the southeast end of Marion. The home is listed under Harry Schauf. The scene remains roped off and guarded while ISP and Marion PD finish collecting evidence.

Marion police say around noon on Monday, they received a call for shots fired. Marion Police Chief, Gene Goolsby, says when officers arrived at the home it seems a domestic altercation had already taken place and one victim had already been shot. Goolsby says that's when the second incident occurred.

"As officers arrived on scene, there was an exchange of gunfire and one of our officers was a victim, and the shooter became a victim, and they are all at the hospital at this time."

No word on the condition of the officer, the victim or the suspect just yet. Illinois State Police and the Marion PD are working together on the investigation.

MARION -- Marion police have identified by the officer shot Monday while responding to a domestic dispute as Steve Cannon, who is currently recovering from injuries at Heartland Regional Medical Center.

Cannon was allegedly shot by Harry L. Schauf, 61, of Marion, who was involved in a domestic incident with his 35-year-old wife, Tina Pickens, just before 1 p.m. Monday, according to Illinois State Police, which is handling the investigation.

Police then returned fire and hit Schauf, police said.

Pickens was found collapsed a block away from Schauf's residence on Van Buren Street with a gun shot wound, according to police reports.

Both Schauf and Pickens were flown from Heartland to a St. Louis area hospital due to the serious nature of their injuries.
