Minnesota man shot by Amtrak police officer in Chicago diesFebruary 16, 2017 12:50am

CHICAGO (AP) — A Minneapolis man who was shot by Amtrak police near Chicago's Union Station has died.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says 25-year-old Chad Robertson died Wednesday, one week after being shot.

Robertson was taking a bus from Memphis, Tennessee, to Minneapolis and was on a stopover in Chicago when the shooting occurred.

According to family members, the transit officer fired at Robertson as he ran during an encounter near Union Station. The officer reportedly fired twice, striking Robertson once in the left shoulder.

Guglielmi says the man's wounds were considered non-life-threatening at the time. He says the wounded man was found with cash and narcotics, but was unarmed.

Attorney Douglas Hopson of Chicago tells the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Robertson's family will now be considering a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers involved.
