The officer that is responsible for the death of Augustus has been on the force for less than two years and he is still in his probational period.

In the police bodycam vision, Augustus can be seen flailing away from police before his shirt is raised. He spins and darts between the SUV and the police cruiser as he reaches toward his waist.

The man police shot and killed in the United States over the weekend appeared to reach for a gun in his waistband in body camera footage released by authorities yesterday. It's not clear if he was going for the weapon. She told the paper that she saw the confrontation and said the officer told Augustus not to sell loose cigarettes. Guglielmi says he was in his 30s, wasn't a known gang member and didn't have a recent arrest history.

Guglielmi said the crowd was incited by false reports, including that the man was unarmed or had a concealed carry permit.

"When they approached him, he tried to push their hands away", Waller told the news organization. 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".

At one point during the incident, an officer shot the unidentified man, who was later taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.

The protest came amid long-simmering tensions over frequent instances of police shootings and brutality against African-American residents in both Chicago and across the country.
