A Chicago PD officer-involved shooting has sparked unrest and threats against police.

Chicago, IL – Protesters gathered and threatened to kill the police after a Chicago PD officer shot a man Saturday night.

The incident happened in the area of 71st St and Chappel Ave at around 5:30 p.m.

Community “witnesses” are claiming that an unarmed black barber was walking home from work when a Chicago PD officer shot him in the back as he was running away.

Other “witnesses” said that the man had a gun, but it was okay for the man to have a gun, because he had a concealed carry permit.

It’s not clear if any of these witnesses actually witnessed the shooting.

UPDATE: Chciago PD confirms that the man had a gun.

No other information has been officially released about the circumstances of the shooting.

The condition of the suspect has not been officially released, but WGN9 reports that is he is dead.
