Looting & Rioting Breaks Out In Chicago After Police Shooting

Via Newsweek:

Large scale protests and unrest have broken out in Chicago, with reports of looting taking place across the city.

There is a heavy police presence on the streets following reports of people breaking into businesses and setting vehicles on fire.

Videos posted on social media show police dealing with the unrest, as well as people appearing to be looting stores.

It is believed the clashes originally broke out after a suspect was shot by Chicago police in the city’s Englewood neighborhood.

Chicago Police confirmed that an officer-involved shooting took place at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 9 in the 5700 block of South Racine Avenue. Officers were dispatched to reports of a man with a gun, who then spotted a suspect matching the description.

Police say the suspect then fired at officers as they approached him in an alleyway. The suspect continued to fire as he attempted to flee on foot, hitting one officer.

Officers returned fire, striking the suspect. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in unknown condition. Three officers involved in the shooting were taken to the hospital for observation.

Police say clashes then broke out between protester and officers and incorrect rumors about the suspect’s age began circulating.

“This right here is a direct response to one agitator being on the scene, getting people all worked up without having the full story,” CPD Deputy Chief Yolanda Talley told NBC Chicago.

Police confirmed the officers involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative duties for 30 days, per protocol.
