A Community Outburst

Published for the Associated Press

The fatal shooting of Daunte Wright in Minneapolis was still fresh on the minds when 13-years old Latino and seventh-grader, Adam Toledo, was shot on March 29, 2021, at a dark alley at about 2 a.m. in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood.

Chicagoans, including the Toledo’s neighborhood, reacted vigorously after releasing body-camera footage showing Chicago police Officer Eric Stillman shot Toledo less than a second after the boy dropped a gun, turned toward the officer, and began raising his hands. The photos here primarily emphasize the community and how they reacted throughout the events.
