Disturbing Video of Police Shooting Unarmed Man in Subway Tube Raises Questions

CPD officer shoots man in video-recorded Red Line struggle Lightfoot calls ‘extremely disturbing’


A Chicago police officer followed a man off a CTA subway train after he was seen walking between train cars, and then shot the man twice during a struggle inside a busy downtown Red Line station during the Friday afternoon rush hour, according to police.

Two officers were taken off the street pending an investigation of the encounter, part of which was captured on video that Mayor Lori Lightfoot called “extremely disturbing” and which police officials suggested could be part of a criminal probe.

The man who was shot made it through surgery Thursday evening at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and though he remained critical, his condition was stabilized.
