Chicago PD posts footage of officer shooting 13-year-old Adam Toledo (Video is excruciating to watch ) R.I.P child .

Chicago Police released body camera footage showing an officer fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy last month.

Video of the murder of Adam Toledo, who was shot on March 29 in what police called an “armed confrontation” has been released Thursday afternoon, less than a week after the boy’s burial. Several videos were released Thursday afternoon by the Chicago Police Civil Accountability Office (COPA) that include body camera footage, a third-party video and a time-lapse version of events.

It came as tensions were already at a boiling point following the police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in a suburb of Minneapolis. Before the video was released, protesters marched through the streets of downtown at night chanting, “Say his name! Adam Toledo! ”

The footage was released to the public after the boy’s family saw them. In a press conference ahead of the publication, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the videos were “incredibly difficult to watch.” She noted that there was “no evidence at all that Adam Toledo shot the police.”

“I want to ask again that everyone agrees right now to think first and foremost of Adam Toledo … that each of us gives [his family] room to breathe, ”Lightfoot said during the briefing, choking at times. “While our understanding of this incident continues to evolve, it remains a complicated and nuanced story. And we must all proceed with empathy, calm, and most importantly, peace. ”

The mayor asked the community to “reserve their judgment” because the authorities “do not have the information to be the judge and the jury of the particular situation”.

“Let’s wait to hear all the facts,” Lightfoot said.

She also denounced the gun problem in the , saying there are too many “on our streets”.

“We failed Adam,” said Lightfoot. “We cannot afford to fail another youngster in our town.”
