McDonald's death led to the ouster of the police chief and a series of reforms meant to prevent future police abuses and to hold officers accountable. "Several officers were injured from rocks and thrown bottles", and in all, four demonstrators were arrested, he said.

Chicago Police released body cam video Sunday from a fatal shooting in the South Shore neighborhood.

Police said he had a semi-automatic weapon along with magazines of ammunition, the report said.
