The shooting on Saturday triggered violent clashes that night and more peaceful protests on Sunday in the latest in a string of U.S. police killings that have at times sparked nationwide demonstrations. Chicago had its own high-profile case leading to unrest in the 2014 police shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who was holding a knife and shot dead as he walked away from police.
