University of Chicago police have released body cam and dash cam video of a shooting that injured a student who charged at an officer with a metal pipe. The University of Chicago student has been identified as 21-year-old Charles Thomas. Thomas is facing criminal charges in connection with the shooting, including felony aggravated assault of a peace officer and two counts of felony criminal damage to property, according to Chicago police. He is also facing two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property. The incident happened about 10:12 p.m. Tuesday in the 5300 block of South Kimbark Avenue in Hyde Park. University police were responding to a robbery call when they encountered Thomas carrying a long metal pipe, the university’s president and provost said in a joint statement. He was bashing car and apartment windows, police said. When officers told Thomas to drop the pipe, he refused and instead charged at one of the officers, officials said. That officer shot the student in his shoulder. The student was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and his parents were notified, the school said. Chicago police are investigating. The University of Chicago officer involved has been placed on mandatory administrative leave pending an investigation.

  1. Description says he got felony aggravated assault on a peace officer, but I didn't see an assault maybe attempted cuz he ran towards the officer but he didn't actually hit the officer, unless it was something we didn't see!? If not then that seems like a bogus charge! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤬🙄

  2. Big tough man trying to intimidate other people, until he gets shot, then he cries like a little girl 🤣😂
    Reality hit hard for him, perhaps he wasted too much time playing computer games, still think it’s a game little boy?

  3. There had to be a better way to deal with this. These cops are pussies, so quick to kill. I would have bum rushed him and beat his ass with the night stick
