After what they described as an armed confrontation, Chicago police fatally shot 13-year-old Adam Toledo on March 29. On Thursday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot called for peace at a news conference before the Civilian Office of Police Accountability released materials from the ongoing investigation, including body camera footage and arrest reports. Officers said they confronted Toledo and a 21-year-old man after responding to gunshots in the area. The Latino teen was holding a gun, and an officer shot him once in the chest after both suspects fled.
