Man shot by Chicago police officer dies, crowd gathers

Here's more of the scuffle between Chicago Police officers and protestors at the scene where an officer shot and killed a man.

The chaotic scene simmered for hours after the encounter, as dozens of people chanting "murderers" and "no justice, no peace" lingered in the neighborhood. Protesters shouted insults at the police and threw some bottles at them. The man began "flailing and swinging" at the officers, Waller said, and as he tried to escape, he appeared to reach for his weapon, which prompted the officer to shoot.

Chicago police fatally shot a neighborhood barber Saturday evening, igniting a protest near the scene in the city's South Shore neighborhood, officials said.

"I know that they're very passionate about things that happen in the community, especially when it's dealing with police, but it got a little bit out of hand", Waller said. Police said that they went to question him "when a confrontation ensues and he is shot".

Protesters were active at the scene past 10:30 p.m. Police said two squad cars were damaged by people slashing tires and jumping on the vehicles, and that four officers were treated and released after being hit by rocks and bottles.

The city erupted in protest in 2015 after the release of a video showing white police officer Jason Van Dyke shooting black 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times in 2014.

Other long-time regulars at the bar told AFP there was a silent majority in Britain who actually backed the presidential visit. Later they will hold talks with the foreign secretary at Chequers - the PM's country residence in Buckinghamshire.

The situation just severely escalated when Chicago Police officers moved their line forward. A livestream of the protest ended about that time also.

The report said that the police department violated the constitutional rights of residents for years, permitting racial bias against blacks and killing people who did not pose a threat. At 1:58 in the video, one police officer blocks Issa's camera view and yells at him to back up before shoving Issa and knocking his phone to the floor.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that four protesters were arrested.

He added that many in the crowd had "a false sense of what occurred". In a statement, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA) said it is committed to a "thorough, objective and unbiased investigation and requests the public's patience and cooperation".
