CHICAGO — A Chicago cop investigating an alleged drug deal shot dead an unarmed man on the South Side on Saturday night after he made an ''aggressive movement'' toward her, police say.

Relatives of Ontario Billups, 30, want to know why he was killed on the 8100 block of South Ashland at 8:30 p.m. They believe the female officer who shot him may have fired in haste out of fear after a string of recent murders of Chicago cops.
