Fred Waller, patrol chief of the Chicago police, told the New York Times and other media, that officers saw a bulge in his pants that they believed to be a gun. Officers approached the man, who became combative and tried to push the officers' hands away.
Police recovered a weapon at the scene but the man did not fire his gun at officers, Waller said.
At some point during the confrontation, the unidentified man was shot, police said. Guglielmi said the shooting was captured on the officer's body camera. "Several arrests were made", Chief Waller said.
The shot man's identity has not yet been released but he is thought to have been aged in his 30s, local media reported.
The shooting took place in the predominantly African-American South Shore neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, fire department spokesman Larry Merritt told The Associated Press.
After nightfall, protesters continued to mill around the neighbourhood with police occasionally chasing them away. The officer has not been identified.
In a statement, the city's Civilian Office of Police Accountability said it's committed to a thorough, objective and unbiased investigation of the shooting.
The man was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Hospital, according to officials. None of the officers were injured.
Just hours after the shooting, the Chicago Police Department released a preliminary statement about the shooting saying the officer who fired the shots would be "placed on routine administrative duties for a period of 30 days".

"There were some members of the community who were upset, " Guglielmi told the newspaper.
