Wrongful death suit filed by slain teen’s family against the City of Chicago

A wrongful death lawsuit has recently been filed against the City of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department by a family whose son was shot by police officers while unarmed. The Chicago police allege that the 18-year-old did, in fact, have a gun. The police are currently reviewing surveillance video taken at the scene. The family and witnesses claim that it only seemed like the teen was carrying a gun because he was trying to hold up his baggy pants.
