Three Chicago cops involved in a fatal police shooting last week have been stripped of their policing powers and assigned to administrative duties pending investigations into the incident.
Police fatally shot Paul O'Neal, 18, Thursday night in the South Shore neighborhood. He died from a gunshot wound to the back.
The shooting happened as police attempted to pull over a Jaguar that had been reported stolen. Officers fired their weapons at the car after it crashed into a police vehicle and sideswiped a second car. O'Neal was reportedly stuck in the back by a bullet as he was fleeing from the vehicle.
The incident is being investigated by the Chicago Police Department and the Independent Police Review Authority.
Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson spoke about the fatal police shooting Sunday.
"For the better part of Friday and Saturday, myself and other members of the command staff have reviewed the information we have so far," he said.
"After this review, I am left with more questions than answers," Johnson added. "As it appears right now, departmental policies may have been violated during the incident."
UPDATE (3:23 p.m.): Chicago police officials on Monday said the body camera worn by the officer who fatally shot O'Neal did not record the actual shooting. The police department is looking into why the officer's device was not working when he fired at O'Neal.
