Loved ones and concerned citizens gathered Wednesday for a vigil near the site where shooting victim Harith Augustus worked.

The 37-year-old was killed after a confrontation with Chicago police on July 14th.

They say he reached for a gun under his shirt before any shots were fired.

Authorities released bodycam video less than 24-hours after the incident.

Police recovered a gun from the scene, but Augustus didn't fire at officers.

He did not have a permit to carry a weapon.

Hundreds of protesters have rallied at demonstrations since the shooting.
