"The community needs some answers and they need them now", he told reporters Sunday. "We can't have another night like last night".
No arrests were made Wednesday night, police said. He says some squad cars were damaged. National protests against police brutality and Black Lives Matter turned its attention toward the city in 2015 after graphic footage of a police officer shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald was released.
Augustus was a barber who went by the nickname "Snoop", said Gloria Rainge, according to the Sun-Times. One protester could be seen stomping on the hood of a police auto.
They said the driver of the vehicle that had been weaving in traffic was the woman who attempted to run away and was hit by another vehicle, police said. He spins and darts between the SUV and the police cruiser as he reaches toward his waist.
Augustus did not fire his weapon and the footage does not show him pulling the gun out of its holster, though he does appear to try to grab something at his waist, Guglielmi said. It's not clear if he was going for the weapon.
Augustus was not a known gang member and did not have a recent arrest history, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. She told the paper that she saw the confrontation and said the officer told Augustus not to sell loose cigarettes.
The Chicago Tribune, citing the city's medical examiner office, identified the man as 37-year-old Harith Augustus.
In a statement, the civil rights campaigner Rev Jesse Jackson called the shooting a tragedy and said it was a blessing Augustus did not bring his daughter with him to work on Saturday, as he was known to do. Witness Allen Davis said that police saw the man's holster and asked him for his concealed carry permit, but when he reached for it, police shot him.
A 2017 Justice Department review found Chicago officers used force almost 10 times more in incidents involving black suspects than against white suspects.
Protesters were seen approaching and shouting at the police officer cordon. Three years later, three officers were indicted on felony charges for allegedly conspiring to cover up the shooting.
The report prompted a series of reforms, including the use of body cameras, created to prevent future police abuses and to hold officers accountable. The body cam video that was released does not have audio as there is a 30-second delay when the officer turns the device on.
