Security guard Jemel Roberson was shot dead on Sunday morning by Police after responded to a shooting inside a bar in Illinois, Chicago, and thought he was the gunman, despite people screaming that he was innocent.

The 26-year-old security guard was working at the bar, and intervened when an argument erupted and someone started shooting.

But when police arrived at the scene, a white officer shot and killed Mr. Roberson instead.

After the sudden death of the security, a witness Adam Harris told Chicago television station WGN : Roberson ‘had somebody on the ground with his knee in back, with his gun in his back, like, ‘Don’t move,”

‘Everybody was screaming out, ‘Security!’ He was a security guard,’ Harris said, but police ‘saw a black man with a gun, and basically killed him.’
On Tuesday, Illinois state police confirmed they were investigating a white officer over the fatal shooting of the ‘brave’ black security guard who had apprehended a suspected gunman at a bar outside Chicago, officials said.

The officer was placed on administrative leave after the incident, which took place in the early hours of Sunday at Manny’s Blue Room Lounge in the town of Robbins, 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of the Midwestern city.
