Black man killed by Chicago police died of multiple gunshots, autopsy shows

Members of the Chicago police department scuffle with an angry crowd at the scene of a police involved shooting in Chicago on Saturday

A man killed by Chicago police had a gun in a holster at his hip and was shot multiple times as he ran away, spun around and reached toward his waist, according to footage released Sunday from an officer's body-worn camera.

Augustus was taken to Jackson Park Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly before 6 p.m., Frank Shuftan, spokesman for Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, told the Chicago Sun-Times. "After that, they approached the subject, who became combative and as he became combative, flailing away, he broke free from the officers and they thought he appeared to be reaching for a weapon - which he did have a weapon on him - and officers tragically shot this man".

A viral Facebook video released Monday showed a Chicago police officer saying "I kill motherfuckers" to the group of black residents filming the video.

Asked by a reporter at a Saturday evening news conference whether the suspect had a license to carry a concealed weapon, Waller responded, "As we know now, he did not".

No police officers were injured, Guglielmi said. Additional protests are planned for 5 p.m. Sunday near Jeffrey Plaza.

Chicago police released two versions of the same video.

Chicago has a troubled history of police shootings and misconduct.

In this instance, police allege the 37-year-old barber was "exhibiting characteristics of an armed person" in the 2000 block of East 71 Street when police confronted him. At least one person jumped on a squad auto. Police then moved in wielding batons to stop them.

Augustus' death set off five hours of unrest as protestors gathered.

It was at least the third time in the last two weeks that a Chicago police officer shot someone.

In the protest, officials said three or four officers suffered minor injuries, and one patrol vehicle was damaged. A Justice Department report issued in January 2017 determined Chicago police officers were guilty of frequently using "excessive force" against the city's African-American and Latino populations. The shooting is under investigation by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA), which said in a statement that it is committed to a "thorough, objective and unbiased investigation and requests the public's patience and cooperation".

The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative duties for 30 days, according to CPD officials. The scuffle turned violent; protesters reportedly tossed rocks and bottles and jumped on police cars, and police hit protesters with batons as protesters returned punches.
