Chicago Police said a man pulled a gun out of his waistband when officers attempted to pat him down Sunday night while checking out a "theft in progress."
A police-involved shooting on Chicago's West Side left one man dead late Sunday.
Police said the man pulled a gun and tried to fight with officers as they attempted to take the gun away.
At 11:30 p.m., officers responded to a call in the 1500 block of South Kostner Avenue to check out a "theft in progress" in the Lawndale neighborhood, according to Police News Affairs.
When officers arrived, police found a man in the abandoned building. Police said the man pulled a gun out of his waistband when officers attempted to pat him down.
During a struggle, both the man and an officer reached for his gun at the same time. That's when police said officers opened fire, fatally striking the man. A weapon was recovered on the scene, police said.
No officers were hurt. The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating the incident.
