CHICAGO (AP) — Dozens of people have gathered in Chicago for a protest over the police shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old.

The protesters gathered Sunday evening in Millennium Park then began marching through downtown, at times blocking traffic. The demonstration comes two days after police released video showing the shooting of Paul O'Neal, who was a suspect in a car theft.

The footage showed Chicago police firing repeatedly at a car O'Neal was driving as it careened away from them. It later showed police handcuffing the mortally wounded O'Neal.

None of the footage from last month shows the moment he was shot in the back.

Police have not identified the officers involved.
