He spins and darts between the SUV and the police cruiser as he reaches toward his waist. Police said that an officer on foot patrol spotted a man who "exhibited the characteristics of an armed person".

He said Augustus' family were in favour of releasing the video for the same reason.

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability, which investigates officer-involved shootings, said it was analyzing the video and asking anyone who may have captured cellphone footage of it to share the footage with the agency. On Sunday, Johnson confirmed that Augustus did not have a hide carry permit.

Johnson says the gun was a semiautomatic handgun but that he's not sure what caliber.

Authorities say a man has died after being shot by a Chicago police officer, and a crowd gathered at the scene to protest.

Augustus' death had sparked angry protests Saturday night.

The release of the body camera footage comes after heated protests on Saturday.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson called the shooting a tragedy and said in a statement that it's a blessing Augustus didn't have his daughter with him Saturday.

The witness said the woman pushed him and struck him in the head with what appeared to be a brick of concrete. Rodriguez and his relatives are ready to share their story, we will make them available to the media".

This is the latest event to expose the mistrust between police and local residents in black communities in Chicago.

Protesters were seen approaching and shouting at the police officer cordon.

The incident happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. Friday in the 7900 block of South Essex Avenue, according to the Chicago Police Department. "After that, they approached the subject, who became combative and as he became combative, flailing away, he broke free from the officers and they thought he appeared to be reaching for a weapon - which he did have a weapon on him - and officers tragically shot this man".

Local journalist Nader Issa, who reports for the Chicago Sun-Times, wrote on Twitter that at one point the situation "severely escalated when Chicago Police officers moved their line forward". Four people were arrested and four officers were treated for minor injuries.

About 150 protesters took to the streets Saturday night on the South Side of Chicago after police officers fatally shot an African-American man following a confrontation. He also said on Sunday officers found two magazines of bullets along with a gun at the site of the shooting.

The decision to make video public less than 24 hours after the incident was a notable departure from police department policy of officer-involved shootings. The scuffle turned violent; protesters reportedly tossed rocks and bottles and jumped on police cars, and police hit protesters with batons as protesters returned punches.

"Productive citizen, he's not a thug, he's not a gang member, it's shocking", activist William Calloway said.
