The medical examiner’s office on Sunday identified the man who was fatally shot by a Chicago police officer Saturday evening, and police released body camera footage of the shooting.

In the police video, two officers approach the suspect, who appears to be wearing a holster, as he stands by another officer.

Antoine Howell, a friend of 37-year-old Harith Augustus, who was shot and killed by a Chicago police officer on July 14, 2018, talks about seeing Augustus at his barbershop right before the shooting.

“The shooting occurred after patrol officers on foot saw a man who was”exhibiting characteristics of an armed person,” chief Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

In a Sunday news release, The Civilian Office of Police Accountability, which investigates all fatal shootings by CPD, said it is continuing its investigation into the shooting.

Outside Chicago Public Safety Headquarters on Sunday, William Calloway, a community activist, told reporters during a noontime news conference that he had filed a Freedom of Information Act request with authorities seeking footage from body cameras, dashboard cameras and police surveillance cameras that captured Saturday’s shooting.

Hours later in a rare move, CPD’s news affairs division sent an email announcing that police Superintendent Eddie Johnson would release body camera footage related to the stop and shooting.
