Officers armed with batons squared off with the protestors with punches thrown on both sides, multiple media accounts said and videos posted on Twitter show. They tossed rocks, bottles and jumped on police cars as the protest escalated near the crime scene in the 2000 block of 71st Street.

In another, a man tumbles to the ground as officers swing batons at the crowd.

But he said that too often good officers allow bad ones to "poison the barrel" by looking the other way and staying silent when they see other officers brutalizing members of the public. CBS Chicago reports the video was released less than 24 hours after Harith Augustus was shot. The department said officers on foot patrol Saturday evening "approached a male subject exhibiting characteristics of an armed person".

"We find no documentation supporting him being [a] concealed carry [permit holder]", Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said. The victim was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Hospital, fire officials said. A weapon was recovered at the scene, he said.

At least four people were arrested and several officers were injured, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted. There were no further details given about the charges.

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 to share it with the agency. In 2016, the city adopted a policy to release video and audio recordings within 60 days of a use-of-force incident.

"The whole situation was hard for all involved", Guglielmi said on Sunday. After the release of that video, the city erupted in protest.

The officers had been surveilling the suspect, wanted in the murder of Sharath Koppu, a 25-year-old University of Missouri Kansas City student who was fatally shot during a robbery in the back of J's Fish and Chicken Market on July 6.

The report prompted a series of reforms, including the use of body cameras, created to prevent future police abuses and to hold officers accountable.

Van Dyke is awaiting trial.

The Chicago Police Department has scheduled a press conference with Supt. Police also released a 50-second slow-motion clip showing Augustus reaching toward his waist.
