Two policemen were injured in a shootout with gunmen in Chicago's South Side late on Tuesday, the force said.

Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms officials say 70 semi-automatic rifles were recovered in Chicago so far this year. The officers were wounded during an encounter while on duty.

The unnamed officers were taken by ambulance to Stroger Hospital.

The officers returned fire, police said.

The officers, who were dressed in plain clothes, were conducting a follow-up investigation to a previous incident when they were hit, according to the department.

Johnson, speaking during a news conference about two hours after the shooting, said there was an "extensive manhunt" underway. Supt. Johnson says, "You know, so we're thankful that they both appear to be OK at this point but we have to do something about this gun violence in this city".

"Listen, if they will fire at police officers like that, they have no thought process in terms of firing at other citizens of this great city".
