      Chicago police have filed eight felony counts against a man who infiltrated a police facility while officers were undergoing a SWAT training exercise. Police say 47-year-old Donald Patrick of Waukegan was charged Tuesday with five counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer and three counts of burglary. He’s due in bond court Wednesday. It's not clear whether Patrick has an attorney who might comment on the charges. Police say Patrick grabbed at least two guns during the incident Monday before he was shot and wounded by an officer. Patrick was treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

      Police say a Chicago-area toddler has been hospitalized in critical condition after finding an unsecured gun and shooting himself in the head. Officers were called to a Joliet home around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, found the boy inside and began efforts to save his life. Police say the boy was taken to a hospital. They say it appeared the child found the gun in a bedroom. The child’s mother was at the home at the time and is cooperating with investigators. No further details were immediately available.
