Police have released bodycam video of a man shot by Chicago police officers on Saturday. He had a valid firearm owners' identification card but detectives have found no documentation that he had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, Johnson said.
The Civilian Office of Police Accountability said in a statement to WLS that there would be a "thorough, objective and unbiased investigation and requests the public's patience and cooperation".
The shot man's identity has not yet been released but he is thought to have been aged in his 30s, local media reported.

The protesters took to the streets on Sunday after a fatal police shooting. Three officers try to grab his arms and he tries to get away, backing into a police cruiser as his shirt flies up and shows the gun.
Augustus was a barber who went by the nickname "Snoop", said Gloria Rainge, according to the Sun-Times. The officer, Jason Van Dyke, was charged with murder. The city erupted in protest in 2015 after the release of a video showing a white police officer shoot a black 17-year-old, Laquan McDonald, 16 times a year earlier.
