Police And Protester Clash After Police Shoot Black Barber Running From Scene

Police and protesters in Chicago engaged in a vicious clash with each other after police shot and killed a black man on Saturday, with some protesters flinging bottles filled with urine at the officers.

The shooting occurred around 5:30 p.m. when a female police officer shot and killed a barber who, witnesses said, was running from her, The Chicago Tribune reported.

The man was “exhibiting characteristics of an armed person,” Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The Tribune. “He looked like he may have something on him. They go to question him, and at that point a confrontation ensues and he is shot.’’

The crowd gathered quickly at the scene of the shooting for the man who, witnesses told The Chicago Sun Times, was nicknamed “Snoop,” and the clash with police was immediate.

Gloria Rainge, 41, told The Sun-Times that she witnessed police tell a man not to sell loose cigarettes, the man denied it, an argument began, and the man ran. It was then, she said, that the officer opened fire shooting, and killing, the man.

Witnesses were irate at the shooting, hitting police with anything they could find. Police fought back with batons hitting protesters and pushing a reporter to the ground.

The crowd chanted “murderers” at police and “no justice, no peace” as the scene got more chaotic.

“There were glass bottles thrown…plastic water bottles. Bottles filled with urine were thrown at officers,” Guglielmi said.

Witnesses told The Tribune and The Sun-Times that the barber was loved in the community. “He was cool, laid back, very intelligent,” Rainge told The Sun-Times.

“He cut my hair and got killed 10 minutes later,” Antoine Howell, 42, said. “I’m hurt… I gotta go on with my life, but I loved that man.”

Guglielmi said “inaccurate information” was responsible for causing the clash with police and protesters.

“There was some inaccurate information that the individual was unarmed,” Guglielmi said. “We have cops out there, community affairs officers, trying to give them as much information as we can … There were some members of the community who were upset. This is a tragic situation where an individual lost his life.’’

Police were able to deescalate the near riot and a more peaceful protest took place at the Grand Crossing police station on Saturday night into Sunday morning.

    This is standard gibberish to defend the undefendable police action. I was afraid for my life as he was running away from me. Enough of this

    Again. This is so fucking sickening. They need to be stopped. You murder and oppress a people for so long and they will revolt.
