CHICAGO -- Chicago police have released body camera video of a fatal police-involved shooting as a community on the South Side demands answers.
Community activists say they're planning a major act of civil disobedience in the coming weeks, including a protest scheduled for Monday at 6 p.m. near 71st St. and Jeffery.
On Saturday, Chicago police shot an armed man in the city's South Shore neighborhood, prompting angry protests from residents.
Bodycam video from one of the officers shows police stopping Harith Augustus, 37, because they believed he was carrying a weapon.
He struggled with officers when they approached him. As he was doing that, police saw a gun on his left hip and a clip of ammunition on his right hip. Augustus then ran from police and appeared to reach for the gun when he was shot.
For hours on Saturday, police and protesters clashed. On Sunday, the protests were more peaceful. Even though they've seen the video, community activists are skeptical.
At Sidelines Studio, friends Augustus, who was known as “Snoop the Barber,” said he worked there for two years and never let anyone get out of his chair unhappy.
“He was a quiet dude. He wasn’t from this area and he just wanted to work,” friend James Stubbs said.
Yoland Webb works next door to the barber shop and said Augustus used to come into her laundromat for snacks. She said she saw the police video and calls it “confusing.”
“It kind of looks like he’s pulling up his pants cause his pants sag, so I’m kind of confused about the video.”
Chicago police say Augustus had a FOID card which gives him the right to own a gun. He did not have a concealed carry license, that would have allowed him to carry a gun in public.
The civilian Office of Police Accountability is investigating.
