Chicago Police Brutally Shoot Man During Arrest, What's the Case

Chicago Police Department (CPD) Superintendent David Brown said during a news conference that police officers were attempting to arrest an individual wanted on two warrants at around 9:40 am Friday. According to the CPD superintendent, while arresting the suspect with their weapons holstered, he turned and pointed his gun directly towards them as they attempted to detain him. This resulted in Chicago law enforcement opening fire and fatally shooting this man who has not been named by authorities but is believed to be 30 years old.

The offender, refusing to exit his vehicle when confronted by officers, pulled out a gun and pointed it at them. The three Chicago police officers and one US marshal all opened fire on the man until he finally went down with gunfire wounds.

The man was transported to the hospital in "grave condition," Brown said. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital, CPD confirmed with The Hill. None of the officers were hit by gunfire, but they did go for a check-up after being on the scene all night long defending their city from violence and chaos outside Trump Tower last night."Chicago Police Brutally Shoot Man During Arrest, What's the Case
