The Chicago Fire Department says paramedics responding to a call about a woman in need of assistance had their ambulance struck by a bullet, and were assaulted by the patient they were attempting to treat early Monday.

The shooting occurred as the paramedics responded to a call about a 19-year-old woman who needed medical attention in the Englewood neighborhood around 4 a.m. Monday.

CFD spokesman Larry Langford told the Chicago Tribune paramedics heard loud bursts and a bullet was later found lodged in the ambulance door. 

Langford said after the woman regained consciousness, she became unruly and attacked the paramedics.
