VIDEO: 3-4 Chicago Officers Hurt After 'Protesters' Attack Following Shooting

Protesters turned violent Saturday night following a fatal officer-involved shooting.

Chicago, IL - Protesters in Chicago started attacking police officers following a fatal officer-involved shooting earlier Saturday evening (videos below.)

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

Chicago PD Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said that officers were working foot patrol when they spotted a man who looked like he may have a weapon in his waistband.

The officers confronted the suspect, who then became combative. As the suspect fought with officers, he flailed away from them.

The suspect then appeared to be reaching for his weapon, and officers fatally shot him.

Officers recovered a semi-automatic firearm and magazines from the suspect.

Chief Waller added that the suspect did not have a concealed carry permit.

The suspect and officers have not been identified at this time.

Almost immediately following the shooting, a large crowd of protesters formed and started threatening to shoot the police.

The crowd spread the story about how a barber named "Snoop" was unarmed and shot in the back as he was walking home from work.

The crowd also created a second narrative where people claimed that Snoop was armed, but they said he had a concealed carry permit.

The crowd started jumping on police cars and clashing with officers.

Many in the crowd threatened police officers, saying that they better not be around come nighttime.

At around sunset, people in the crowd started to throw glass bottles, rocks, and bottles of urine at officers. Chief Waller said three to four officers were injured in the attacks.

Officers responded by ordering the protesters back and taking down troublemakers and people who refused to listen.

It's getting even worse it seems, when an ARMED and COMBATIVE person is killed but people are STILL blaming the cops without any evidence whatsoever. It's gotten so that the cops are treated with a "guilty never to be proven innocent" ruling within mere hours of an event. I pray for the safety of the CPD officers and the community members who actually want to live peacefully. The scariest part to me is that with a crowd that size the lies, rumors, conjecture moves like wildfire and is just as dangerous.

Chicago PD can't possibly win. They are attacked from all sides. They are cast as the invading force by activists, their politicians, and community "leaders" The media ramps every event into an escalated call to attack them. An OIS of a man with a gun gets transformed into an unarmed man shot in the back for no reason. The lie spreads like wildfire and predictably protests turn into riots. In other words, a typical Saturday night is Chiraq.

Just a couple of thoughts.....

  1. I wonder if stricter federal minority control laws could have prevented this tragedy?
  2. Once a reporter decides to imbed himself in a riot, he is no longer protected by his occupation. At that point he is just like anyone else.
  3. The higher ups at the CPD should have been able to predict this outcome the moment they sent officers into a war zone in an attempt to control violent crime. Now, the family of this criminal will sue and of course the city will pay out. Then the officers involved will become the scapegoats and lose their jobs or be indicted by a city scared of riots. If you're a Chicago officer, do yourself a favor and only answer calls for service. Don't self initiate confrontations like this one. You'll only end up on the front page news as the big, bad, racist officer.

It's really sad that it's come to this thanks to the last administration's efforts to start a race war. Sadly some have fallen into the trap and this is the end result. Our country is torn now and needs mending, I just hope people come to their damn senses and understand when you break the law and threaten others, even by carrying a concealed weapon when not legal, you are headed for serious trouble and may even be shot by police, and if you reach for it, forget it, you will be shot.

This so called reporter has lied from the beginning. First he is thrown to the ground by Police, then he is pushed to the ground by Police and lastly he is pushed backwards and stumbles but can’t remember if he landed on the ground!! If this guy with a gun was so innocent why did he flee? I say, put a fence around Chicago and let them have at it!

The whole Chicago police department needs an overhaul, starting from the top. They have been ineffective for decades, and it's clear they have no idea what they are doing. Like many other cities as well.

LEO0301
LEO0301

The Chicago PD doesn't need to be overhauled. They're not the ones putting guns in the hands of criminals who then shoot and kill indiscriminately. What we need is for minorities to take responsibility for their neighborhoods. The real problem, as most experts will tell you, is that blacks have almost no real family structure. But, as usual, people want to blame law enforcement for black children growing up in single family homes which creates an environment where these kids look to the streets for guidance. Look a little closer to home, but be careful, you might not like what you see.

Chicago PD in a no win situation. Caught between an ultra-liberal do-nothing mayor and a violent and well armed black community, there are no options but to let the thugs run wild and kill each other!

The reason the story changes immediately is because most of these idiots have been brainwashed their whole lives into believing anything that happens to them, by the police, is because they are black, not because they committed a crime. Way back in the early 80's most of the folks I dealt with in Oakland thought the crime was getting caught not the actual crime they committed. They blamed the police back then, but there was some actual acknowledgement of their own actions. This has been getting worse over the decades, mostly because of the press and the left wing asswipe politicians not holding all groups to the same standard. The last administration put it front and center and caused this problem to escalate faster and further. I actually laughed when the "reporter" got his phone knocked out if his hand.

@ByAnyMeansNecessary: They are an embarassment to the entire HUMAN race! Thankfully, they don't represent the majority of even those who look like them. These fools are so desperate to hold onto their victim status they are willing to stoop to lies and violence to keep it. Sad way to live, really!

@LEO0301 Are you getting your info from 1994? Do me a favor: check to see who is the fastest growing demographic for prison currently.

Here's a hint. It looks less like me, more like @Katarina. on that note, i wish the katarinas of the country would behave themselves. The rampant drug use and kid fucking is getting out of hand.

I read my previous comment and at no point do I mention current incarceration rates. What I did mention is that black children mostly grow up in single family homes. In fact, if you look at current stats, you'll see that number has risen to over 72%. If you think that number is exaggerated, bring up your own numbers to show otherwise.

@LEO0301 You mentoned 'strict minority laws' did you not? My response was saying you have the wrong demographic because that should more apply to Midwestern white women currently.

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 of us.

So true Jimhilton911 ! People act like criminals before they even know the full story. You don't want to chance being shot by someone (Police Officer) that want to keep themselves safe so they can go home to their family at the end of the day, then follow their damn orders!!! Look at the numerous Police Officers being shot around the country. Can you blame them for taking action when one does not follow direction ? Better to be judged by 12, than carried by 6! Anyone who riots in such situations are no better than the criminals who commit the crimes that disrupt their neighborhoods. You want civility in your neighborhood, then quit being part of the problem!

not impressed with the "reporter". He said the cops charged into the parking lot and started hitting people. Sorry, I saw ONE cop tap one of the "protesters" with the end of his baton. If this guy's video doesn't show what he professes, he shouldn't be claiming it. And what started all of the police rush was the guy in the blue cap and white T shirt pushing against them and getting combative with officers. Does this reporter not see that? Then he says he got "shoved to the ground." Really? How come he was standing up after they knocked his phone out of his hand? And the only reason they got after him was that they had repeatedly told him to get back. Yeah, he told them he was a reporter and they said "that's fine" but back up. He kept disobeying that direct, lawful order and that's how he got his phone knocked down, etc. And did you notice in his last post featured here, he says "I lost my balance but can't remember if I hit the ground or not." This is AFTER he claimed he was shoved to the ground. Look at your video, Mr. Reporter. It will show you didn't get pushed to the ground and the cops were justified in pushing you back when you kept disobeying their orders to back up. As a former journalist, I know how things work. You have to get the story but that doesn't give you the right to interfere! This guy needs to go back to school and learn the basics or travel with a more experienced reporter, a real one. He has the attitude that because he carries a press pass, he can go wherever he wants to. Doesn't work that way. I never DEMANDED entrance to a crime scene, fire scene or anything else and if I got too close and they told me to get back I did. This guy is a disgrace to the profession because of that and his very apparent bias against police and for people who are breaking the law and out of control. It's like he bought into THEIR story and tried to slant his reporting that way.

Video clearly shows that the dead perp tried to pull his weapon, a firearm, from his right side and that he was shot accordingly. Good job by the cops, but the ignorant crowd can't comprehend. So stupid, so very stupid.
