Chicago police may have violated policy in fatal shooting

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said on Saturday he has seen enough of police videos of the fatal shooting by an officer of an unarmed 18-year-old black man last month to suspect possible violations of departmental policies.
Johnson told a news conference it was against departmental policy to fire at or into a moving car when the vehicle was the only potential use of deadly force by a suspect. He said he relieved officers of duty last week because of those concerns.
Authorities on Friday released videos that captured the moments before and after police shot Paul O'Neal on July 28, but not the shooting itself because a policeman's body camera was not recording. No firearms were found on O'Neal, who was shot in the back, according to police.
