LOOK: Armed man runs away, reaches for waist, shot dead by cops

CHICAGO, United States --- A man killed by Chicago police had a gun in a holster at his hip and was shot multiple times as he ran away, spun around and reached toward his waist, according to footage released Sunday from an officer's body-worn camera. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said it's the quickest he has ever ordered such video released and that he hoped to dispel rumors that Harith Augustus, 37, was unarmed. He also hoped that making the 30-second clip public before a planned protest would prevent another violent confrontation between residents and officers.

FIBA WORLD CUP ASIAN QUALIFIERS: Gilas loses to Australia by default after fight-marred game

BOCAUE, BULACAN --- After an ugly free for all, Gilas Pilipinas was left with only three players to go up against the talented Australians at the Philippine Arena here. With four minutes to go in the third period, a brawl broke out between the Philippines and Australia. After the commotion settled and reviews were done, four players from the Boomers were ejected. Thon Maker, Nathan Sobey, Daniel Kickert, and Chris Goulding were thrown out on the part of Australia. For Gilas, Andray Blatche, Jayson Castro, Terrence, Romeo, Calvin Abueva, RR Pogoy, Troy Rosario, Japeth Aguilar, Matthew Wright, and Carl Bryan Cruz were ejected for disqualifying fouls, leaving Gabe Norwood, June Mar Fajardo, and Baser Amer to fend of themselves. The game naturally ended with an Australia win by default after Norwood and Fajardo fouled out. Final score was 89-53, leaving 1:57 on the clock in the third period. [Related: FIBA WORLD CUP ASIAN QUALIFIERS: Gilas-Australia match ends in ugly brawl] As it stands, Australia took over first place in Group B and will head to the second round of the Asian Qualifiers with a 5-1 record followed by Gilas Pilipinas (4-2) and Japan (2-4). In terms of the game before the brawl, Gilas kept it competitive after the opening 10 minutes but a 9-0 run by Australia in the second quarter opened things up. As the Boomers took a double-digit lead, the Philippines never recovered and the Australians cruising for a victory that could have been a fitting bounce back a suffering a shock upset at the hands of Japan last week. After nearly everything went right for Gilas in a dominant road win over Taipei, nearly everything went wrong for the Philippines in its home stand. Everything went wrong actually and the Philippines could be facing trouble with FIBA over the incident.   The Scores:   AUSTRALIA 89 — Goulding 20, Kickert 12, Dellavedova 9, Brandt 8, Maker 8, Kay 7, Lisch 7, Sobey 7, Gliddon 6, Drmic 5, Cadee 0, McCarron 0. PHILIPPINES 53 — Blatche 12, Fajardo 10, Castro 8, Aguilar 6, Romeo 6, Norwood 4, Pogoy 4, Amer 3, Abueva 0, Rosario 0, Wright 0.   Quarters: 23-18, 52-37, 89-53.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
