'Kill The Cops' - Unrest After Chicago Cop Shot 'Unarmed Black Man' With Gun

A Chicago PD officer-involved shooting has sparked unrest and threats against police.

Chicago, IL - Protesters gathered and threatened to kill the police after a Chicago PD officer shot a man Saturday night.

The incident happened in the area of 71st St and Chappel Ave at around 5:30 p.m.

Community "witnesses" are claiming that an unarmed black barber was walking home from work when a Chicago PD officer shot him in the back as he was running away.

Other "witnesses" said that the man had a gun, but it was okay for the man to have a gun, because he had a concealed carry permit.

It's not clear if any of these witnesses actually witnessed the shooting.

UPDATE: Chciago PD confirms that the man had a gun.

No other information has been officially released about the circumstances of the shooting.

The condition of the suspect has not been officially released, but WGN9 reports that is he is dead.

No officers were injured in the shooting.

Neither the involved officers or suspect have been identified at this time.

Almost immediately after the shooting, a crowd gathered and started threatening to shoot the police officers.

At least one person started jumping on police cars.

The unrest has been captured on video by the large number of community activists who arrived following the shooting.

"Other "witnesses" said that the man had a gun, but it was okay for the man to have a gun, because he had a concealed carry permit."

You can't own a gun in the state of Chicago. Chicago doesn't have CCW. If you have a gun in Chicago and you're not law enforcement, it's a felony.

I live in Chicago and have a CCW. The law was made purposely to trump any home-rule action.

Look at all that edumehcation. Anytime anything happens it’s time to protest. Forget facts or even waiting for the story. All you need is a “witness” and it’s good to go. Look at the shit Dorian Johnson stirred up with his clearly lies about what happened in Ferguson.

How do any so called witness know if guy had a ccp or not and what does it even matter if he did or not if he made any move toward the gun while with the officers that would cause officers to fire a shot. We now just have to wait for what really happened to find out just why the "armed" black man was shot. ...But id really like to see these protestors show up at the scenes where unarmed black males are continually being gunned down & murdered by armed black male thugs in this city!

Don't be silly everyone... The nice man with the gun simply wanted to show it to his new friend the police officer. He had no culpability for his illegal weapon leading to his death. We should definitely form our own mob and join in the fun of the protests.

@Bstn199 Protesting is no fun if there's not lots of media around and if you don't have a common, usually authoritative enemy you can point out as the reason for your continued status as a victim. And protesting the very real threat of violence within your own community could actually accomplish something and have the result of liberating you from your perceived oppression, which can't be allowed to happen or you'd have no one but yourself to blame for anything.

Seriously did we expect anything different from Chicago? Black or not, he had a gun. People need to stop assuming that the person with the gun is innocent and the police are just shooting them out of hate etc. I honestly believe the gun laws are so TIGHT in Chicago because of things like this. These are not people... they are animals. They have no respect, they have no fear of the law. I pray for the officers in Chicago...

I've always been amazed how quickly a hostile crowd can gather in black neighborhoods. Honestly, I've seen it where it was 3am, not a person to be found except the officer and a homey, when all of a sudden 300 people come crawling out of the woodwork like cockroaches in a dirty apartment.

I wonder what would happen to Chicago if the "Blue Flu" struck for a week or two ? Would there be any survivors and any business left standing ? Probably not.

I can't watch these videos anymore. Idiots. Typical though to go bat-shite crazy before the investigation has even started. Nothing new on the streets of Chicago.

The "community" has to do what the "community" has to do!" Why does it always have to be anti-police violence?

Go stage another walk. Better yet, just let them eliminate each other.

4 killed, 20 wounded. All wonderful people shooting each other. Bet no one knows anything.

Chicago should do the same as Baltimore. Give them the space to riot, loot and burn. Let them get it off of their chests. They'll feel better and no officer will be injured. Of course there maybe some residual damage, like burnt down businesses, but I'm sure the city has money stashed away in it's coffers to rebuild the city. "Burn that fucker down!" Oh, wait! That was the Ferguson chant for urban renewal. Sorry, it's difficult to tell one shithole from another.

I'm trying to figure out what the hell the problem is here? If I'm a police officer and I see suspicious behavior and a bulge I believe to be a gun, as an officer sworn to uphold the law I have a duty to protect my community -that's the whole reason they hired me! Thus I have an obligation to inquire. If the citizen cooperates and produces a valid concealed carry permit, then I apologize for any inconvenience, and we all go on our merry way! But if the citizen fails to cooperate, appears mentally unstable by exhibiting unruly and agitated behavior, or proceeds to behave like a perpetrator then as a law officer I will shift gears and proceed to treat him or her like a criminal. If he becomes combative (like he did in this case), and "reaches" in anger for what I believe to be a gun, what am I supposed to do? Wait for him to pull out the gun and shoot me dead?! Is that what you armchair experts on the left would do if you were in this situation? As it turns out in this case it WAS a gun, it WAS illegally concealed, and the man WAS also resisting! And so what does the community do before finding out any of the relevant facts of the case? They pull an Al Sharpton and riot! They jump on up and down on police cars and burn and loot! They scream for police to be shot! You know what I say? Screw all you lefty jackasses!!! Our police officers have every right to defend themselves, just like the rest
