A Chicago officer with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) was ambushed on the job and shot in the face on Chicago's South side early Friday morning.

Chicago police say a federal agent was shot in the head and critically wounded in Chicago while working on an undercover operation with local authorities.

The agent was taken to a hospital with critical injuries, the police said.

Also the local hospital was taken by the police officer.

No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting, the police said, but a manhunt for the gunman was underway Friday morning.

"We will find you".

The agent was part of a newly created task force designed to stem the flow of illegal guns into the city.

Residents near the Back of the Yards neighborhood say they heard a series of gunshots.

"I implore on everybody today to help us bring the assailants who are responsible for this to justice", said Celinez Nunez, special agent in charge of the ATF's Chicago field division. "We are blessed that the ATF officer shot will survive and be okay", said Johnson. CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the area will be on lockdown through the weekend and ordered the deployment of all specialized units to assist in ATF's shooting investigation.

Officers say they do not have any intentions of letting up on their search for the suspect.
