Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi wrote late Saturday night that officers cleared the scene. McDonald's death led to the ouster of the police chief and a series of reforms created to prevent future police abuses and to hold officers accountable.
Guglielmi says a weapon was recovered at the scene but did not say where or whether it was on the man.
The incident happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. Friday in the 7900 block of South Essex Avenue, according to the Chicago Police Department. Contrary to those reports, Guglielmi said the officer who shot Augustus was a male.
Witness Gloria Rainge told the Chicago Sun-Times that officers instructed the victim not to sell loose cigarettes, which he denied doing.
Several police officers were slightly injured in the scuffles, Chief Waller said, and some squad cars were damaged. The officer has not been identified. Chicago's Civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating the shooting, according to the Tribune. Four officers have been placed on administrative duty, per police protocol.
There has been a string of USA police killings of black men that have sparked nationwide protests, but the name, age and race of the man shot were not released by police early Sunday (local time). No officers were injured during the shooting. Two hours later, protesters had gathered at the scene of the fatal shooting on 71st St. and faced off with authorities who used their batons to push back the furious crowds. Some protesters chanted "murderers" as police watched. Video circulating on social media show tense confrontations between police and protesters.
The shooting sparked a clash between angry residents and baton-wielding officers.
