The Chicago police kill people deadly after they have mistaken him for his brother, who is a murder suspect

The Chicago police shot a man who they tried to arrest after confusing the victim with his brother, who was probably a fugitive murder suspect.

Curtis Stagger, 21, was shot dead by police on a driveway in Chicago at about 1:45 PM on Tuesday, while officers tried to execute an arrest warrant for his brother.

At a press conference, the authorities said the Chicago PD fugitive unit was trying to arrest Stagger while he was in his car, allegedly pulling a gun, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The police then opened fire on Stagger. He was then taken to the hospital, where he was declared dead.

A photo of the semi-automatic pistol that Stagger reportedly took out when it was approached by officers was swept out by a police spokesperson shortly after the shooting took place.

However, it was not until that evening, when Stagger took his fingerprints, that the police realized that he was the brother of the murder suspect who had tried to arrest the police when the shooting took place.

Prior to the official identification, the police had believed that it was the murder suspect that they had an arrest warrant for being killed.

The police are now trying to determine whether Stagger actually shot at the officers before he was shot. It was initially reported that Stagger had opened fire.

The officers involved in the shooting, who have not been identified, have been placed at the 30-day reception after the incident.

Stagger allegedly lived a block away from where he was killed and that the shooting took place in his uncle's driveway, according to Chicago Sun Times.

A woman who lived near the recording location told CBS 2 that the officers who initially tried to arrest Stagger were in unmarked cars and were wearing normal clothes.

She said she thought she heard & # 39; heard someone say & # 39; stopped shooting at me "and they kept saying" Chicago P.D. "& # 39;

The Horace Mann primary school, located at the end of the block where the shooting took place, was temporarily locked after the incident, the authorities said.

Stagger's brother is wanted in connection with the May 15 death of Jaylin Ellzey, 15, from Chicago. He was killed in a drive-by attack at approximately 2.15 p.m. while standing on the street with a 23-year-old woman.

Ellzey was shot in the head, abdomen and lower body and was declared dead in the hospital. The woman suffered a gunshot wound in the chest.

The police did not reveal what role, according to Stagger's brother, they played in the shooting.

However, police arrested Antawan Smith, 29, in connection with Ellzey's death on May 26, after a car chase that started as a traffic stop.

Smith is said to have fired seven or eight of the shots that had hit Ellzey and the woman while he was in the car used during the shooting.

The police did not reveal what role, according to Stagger's brother, they played in the shooting.
