Chicago police shot and killed an innocent black man, Curtis Stagger, on May 28.
The cops were searching for a suspect wanted in the death of 15-year-old Jaylin Ellzey from earlier this year.
The cops encountered Stagger outside his home. The police claimed Stagger fired a gun, but then later claimedhe flashed a gun but didn’t fire, notes WGN-TV.
The police killed Stagger while he was inside his car. The cops claim a semi-automatic pistol was found in the car, but Stagger’s family doesn’t believe Stagger had a gun in his hand.
The person the police were trying to find was Tyreece Stagger, the younger brother of the dead man. Tyreece was taken into custody in mid-June, but was not charged with a crime, and was released.
After four months, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability is still investigating the shooting.
