Chicago Police: Man suspected of carjacking shot after pointing object at police

A man who ran from South Chicago District officers after being stopped on suspicion of carjacking was fatally shot when he pointed something at officers as he fled the stolen car, authorities said.
The man was taken in critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital following the shooting about 1:45 p.m. near 75th Street and Jeffery Boulevard, said Chicago Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7 spokesman Patrick Camden. The man was fatally wounded, according to Chicago Police News Affairs.
The Independent Police Review Authority confirmed a police-involved shooting took place about that time. No police officers were injured in the incident, an IPRA spokesman said.
Two South Chicago District tactical officers saw a grey Dodge Charger with Wisconsin plates heading west on 75 th Street a little before 1:45 p.m.  and checked to see if the car was wanted in any crimes, Camden said. The driver appeared to be the only person in the car, and when the search turned up nothing, the officers let the car proceed in traffic without stopping it, Camden said.
