[ Video] Chicago Police Releases Video Of African American Man Being Killed By Police

On July 14, 2018 an African-American man named Harith Agustus was fatally shot by Chicago police on the city’s south side after a brief stop and frisk.

The officers claimed he had a weapon which he did, they also claimed when they reached for the gun he pushed their hand away, which he did.

The man then pushed himself away and took off running and that’s when the fatal shots were fired.

It was difficult to determine if the man pulled the gun from his waist because it all happened so quickly and the squad car blocked the view.

Chief Waller said the police recovered a semiautomatic weapon from Mr. Augustus, whom he did not believe was licensed to carry a concealed gun.

 

Take a look at the video and judge for yourself.
