    The shooting occurred in September. I checked but didn't find an earlier thread.

    From the first link above:

    Media coverage after shooting:

    Man Fatally Shot By CPD Officer In Humboldt Park

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2015/09/25/breaking-police-involved-shooting-in-humboldt-park/

    Man killed in police-involved shooting on West Side

    http://wgntv.com/2015/09/26/man-killed-in-officer-involved-shooting-on-west-side/

    It will be interesting to see evidence in this case.

    I'll look.
    As we have seen in many other cases, inaccurate info can come from LE, from 911 callers, eye witnesses, and others. Not taking anyone's account as gospel.

    I wonder what they mean by a "box cutter like object." An X-Acto? Utility knife? Nail file?

    The green and blue knives are what I would call utility knives. But I think they would say utility knife or box cutter not box cutter like object.
