More than 100 local and federal officials are combing parts of Chicago today as authorities try to track down the people responsible for shooting at undercover agents, injuring one, in the early morning hours.

“The actions of the offenders in this were barbaric,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said today. “This is the fourth law enforcement officer in a year that’s been shot over in that area. … I got a message for them (shooters): ‘We’re coming for you.'”

The article goes on to state the following:

According to Celinez Nunez, the special agent in charge for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the agent was “ambushed” at approximately 3 a.m. today and shot in the face.

She said the injured agent had been carrying out an operation to intercept illegal guns when individuals opened fire, striking the agent in the face. Fellow officers put the agent into a silver SUV and took him to a hospital.

Johnson said that the agent who was shot will survive. He also had a message for the suspects:

“We will knock on every door, talk to every witness, watch every piece of video and analyze every piece of evidence. Believe me. You will not get away with this.”
