The Latest on the deadly police-involved shooting in Chicago (all times local):

5:45 p.m.

An autopsy has determined that an 18-year-old suspect who was shot by Chicago police died from a gunshot wound to the back.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death of Paul O'Neal of Chicago was a homicide. The shooting occurred Thursday night during a stolen vehicle investigation.

Authorities have said officers stopped a Jaguar convertible that had been reported stolen. Police said officers opened fire after the driver, identified as O'Neal, put the car in drive and sideswiped a squad car and a parked vehicle.

O'Neal was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson on Friday relieved two officers of their police powers following the shooting. Police say investigators are still reviewing the actions of a third officer involved in the shooting.

O'Neal was black; police have not provided any identifying information about the officers who were involved.

12:15 a.m.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson has relieved two officers of their police powers following a police-involved shooting that left a suspect dead.

Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says although Thursday night's shooting of 18-year-old Paul O'Neal of Chicago remains under investigation, departmental policies may have been violated by the officers. He added that the department is still reviewing the actions of a third officer involved in the shooting.

The shooting occurred during a stolen vehicle investigation.

Authorities say officers exited their vehicle late Thursday after stopping a Jaguar convertible that had been reported stolen. Chicago Police First Deputy Superintendent John Escalante says the driver of the Jaguar, identified as O'Neal, then put the vehicle in drive, sideswiping a squad car and a parked vehicle. Escalante says the officers fired, hitting O'Neal who later pronounced dead at a hospital.
