Protesters on Wednesday were calling on Chicago police to take action against a Bridgeport resident and firefighter accused of pulling a gun on someone as he ran a work-related errand.
CBS 2 first talked to the man, Jermayne Smith, after he says a man who was later identified as a firefighter mistook him for a criminal breaking into a car.
Smith says the man—who is not being named by CBS because he hasn’t been charged—identified himself as a cop and pulled out a gun and said, “Get on the ground. What are you doing in the neighborhood? Get on the ground before I shoot you,’” Smith recalled.
Police arrived on the scene and placed Smith in handcuffs as officers talked with the man with the gun.
