Police say 4 protesters arrested after shooting

Community activists promised a second day of protests after a Chicago Police offer fatally shot a man in the South Shore neighborhood.

Chicago police patrol chief Fred Waller told a news conference that a crowd became combative after the shooting earlier Saturday, throwing bottles and jumping on top of a squad vehicle. The man reportedly became combative and began "flailing and swinging" at police when they approached him. Police said the man had a "bulge around his waistband" and was "exhibiting characteristics of an armed person" when a confrontation developed and he was shot. A weapon was recovered at the scene, he said.

The father to a five-year-old, Augustus, also known as Snoop the Barber, worked in a barbershop near where he was shot.

Witness Gloria Rainge told the Chicago Sun-Times that officers instructed the victim not to sell loose cigarettes, which he denied doing.

Harith Augustus, 37, of the 7000 block of South Merrill Avenue in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Hospital at 5:50 p.m. Saturday, according to a statement from the Medical Examiner's Office.

Several police officers were slightly injured in the scuffles, Waller said, and some squad cars were damaged. The officer has not been identified. No officers were injured during the shooting.

Angry locals chanted "Murderers!".

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

Videos and photos posted on social media showed a heavy police presence in the area following the incident.

Police then moved in wielding batons to stop them. When he denied doing it, their argument heightened and an officer opened fire as the man ran away. After the release of that video, the city erupted in protest.

As protesters gathered earlier, one protester used a megaphone to yell out the names of other people who had been fatally shot by Chicago police, including 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

The officer, Jason Van Dyke, was charged with murder. The three were arraigned Monday.

Police said the demonstrators in Chicago on Saturday were dispersed at about 22:30 local time (03:30 GMT). A livestream of the protest ended about that time also.

During the protest that followed the shooting, officers pulled people to the ground and struck them with batons. Four people were arrested and four officers were treated for minor injuries.

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