Protests break out in Chicago after a man is fatally shot by police – CNN

(CNN)Protesters chanted and threw rocks at Chicago police Saturday night after an officer shot and killed a man in the city’s South Side hours earlier, authorities said.

At least four people were arrested and several officers were injured, police said.
The incident started as several police officers were patrolling the city’s South Side on foot. They spotted a man “who they thought might be armed” and approached him, Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller told reporters.
The man became combative and pushed officers’ arms away before reaching for a weapon on his waist band, Waller said.
At some point during the confrontation, the unidentified man was shot, police said. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
