CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer shot and killed a man on the South Side early this morning after the man allegedly refused to drop a handgun he was carrying and then charged the officer who had been looking to question him, police said.

The man was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the torso outside a brick bungalow home in the 8100 block of South Morgan Street, police said. He was identified this morning by the Cook County medical examiner's office as Johnny Goodwin, 22.
