In Chicago, protests erupted Saturday after police officers shot and killed a 37-year-old African-American man on the South Side of Chicago. Harith Augustus was a well-known barber and the father of a 5-year-old daughter. An edited clip of body camera video released on Sunday shows at least four officers approaching Augustus, who is wearing a holster containing a pistol. Records show Augustus had a legal permit to carry a firearm. In the video, Augustus then tries to run away from the officers when an officer opens fire, shooting him repeatedly. The police claim he was reaching for his gun at the time of the shooting. On Saturday night, hundreds of Chicago residents took to the streets to protest his killing. Video of the protests shows police attacking protesters with batons. At least four people were arrested.
