'I'm not going to say he was an angel': The Milwaukee man who was killed by cops as he 'reached for his gun' - sparking a night of violence. National Guard activated as city braces for more protests

All this havoc and mayhem over a streel thug like this? 

Daily Mail reports first images of the 23-year-old armed man shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer, whose death sparked riots and unrest in the city, have surfaced.
Officials identified the dead man as Sylville K Smith, previously charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety for his involvement in a shooting last year, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Both Smith and the officer who shot him are black, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

During a press conference Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett said a photo shows 'without question' Smith had a gun in his hand.

Barrett said that Smith had 'more firepower than the officer', and his handgun was loaded with 23 rounds, which he refused to drop when ordered by police.
