Protests in Chicago after police fatally shoot man

Protests in Chicago after police fatally shoot man

The man became combative, pushed the officers' arms away and flailed his arms, trying to escape, Waller said. Chicago Police Patrol Chief Fred Waller admitted the situation "got a little out of hand" as four people were arrested.

The man broke free and ran from the officers, who believed "he appeared to be reaching for a weapon" and shot him, he said.

"They thought he appeared to be reaching for a weapon, which he did have a weapon on him, and the officers tragically shot him", he told AP.

An officer was involved in a confrontation with an armed suspect in Chicago. Augustus had a valid FOID card, but no concealed carry permit, Johnson said during Sunday's press conference. The Chicago Sun-Times also identified the man as a barber known as Snoop.

Witnesses told the Chicago Sun-Times that a female officer had opened fire on the man and then "was immediately put in a squad auto and taken away from the scene".

Chicago's Civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating the shooting to see whether use of deadly force was justified, according to Fox 32 Chicago.

At one point during the incident, an officer shot the unidentified man, who was later taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead. None of the officers were injured. Some shouted "murderers" and chanted "no justice, no peace". More than 1,430 people have been shot in the city so far this year, however that statistic actually represents an improvement as it's 496 fewer than this time last year, according to the Chicago Tribune. Officers struck back with batons. In 2015, protesters blocked Interstate 94 after police released a graphic dash-cam video showing an officer shooting Laquan McDonald, 17.

After the shooting, residents began approaching the officers and disputing the police department's version of the incident.

Police planned to release footage from officers' body-worn cameras later on Sunday.

Randale Truitt, 31, of the 200 block of East 70th Street, is charged with attempted first-degree murder. The three were arraigned Monday. The scene of the shooting and protest was cleared by 10:30 p.m. A livestream of the protest ended about that time also.

At least four people were arrested and several officers were injured, police said.

Officials said three or four officers suffered minor injuries and one patrol vehicle was damaged, and four protestors were arrested.

He added that many in the crowd had "a false sense of what occurred".

Police said the demonstrators in Chicago on Saturday were dispersed at about 22:30 local time (03:30 GMT).
