Chicago police officer fatally shoots armed black boy, 15, in Englewood

A 15-year-old boy was fatally shot by a Chicago police officer in the South Side's Englewood neighborhood Sunday night, authorities said.
The shooting happened about 10:50 p.m. in the 6600 block of South Sangamon Street.
Pat Camden, a union spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police, said officers assigned to a gang crimes unit heard gunfire in the area and spotted three people running as the officers responded.
Police pursued one of the runners, leaving their car and chasing him on foot down Sangamon Avenue, according to a preliminary statement from the Chicago Police Department's Office of News Affairs. During the foot chase, the runner turned towards the officers and pointed a gun at them, drawing fire from an officer, according to the statement.
The boy was struck and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. He was pronounced dead at 11:35 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.
It was the second fatality in a police-involved shooting Sunday; a 24-year-old man had been shot and killed in the Lawndale neighborhood early that morning.
Relatives identified the victim in Sunday night's shooting as Michael Westley, as did the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Family members rushed to the hospital after the shooting, said Niyah Lewis, who said she was Westley's cousin.
Lewis, 32, said the shooting happened shortly after the boy had been throwing a football in front of a Father's Day gathering at his grandmother's home.
Relatives were frustrated at the amount of information police were sharing with them, Lewis said.
"We know absolutely nothing," Lewis said.
Westley was a high school freshman, said Irea Martin, 32, who said she was his aunt.
"We're not talking about a 17-year-old," Martin said. "We're talking about a kid."
While Lewis and Martin said witnesses had told relatives they had not seen Westley holding a gun, Camden said the boy had been carrying two weapons -- a .40-caliber handgun and a revolver tucked into his waistband.
Police did not sustain any injuries, Camden said.
It was not immediately clear if police took any other suspects into custody.
Police were reviewing tape from a blue-light camera located at the corner of Sangamon and West 66th Street to see if it captured the shooting.

A white woman is waiting for the bus.She just got off a 12 hour shift of waiting on tables.She is trying to help keep her family afloat.The bus pulls up and it is full of unruly blacks.She decides to wait for another bus.Nearby Julie Unruh is reporting on a story.She sees this and talks to the woman.She makes the woman feel guilty about what she did and uses the dreaded R word.The next day the white woman again waits for the bus after a long day of work.She thinks about what the WGN reporter said and is happy because she not only got a big paycheck but the most tips she ever had.She boards the bus the only white person.Within 30 minutes she is beaten,robbed and brutally raped on the bus.Nobody sees a thing.And Julie Unruh and the WGN News(or most other media) do NOT report this story.

You have to use your street smarts no matter how racist they are percieved to be. Never let another guilt you, let them go if they want but her instincts of self preservation were correct.

Protesting innocence so much is always suspicious. Next they will claim they are armed for protection not for harming others.

Me and my partner were on scene within minutes of the shooting and saw the nice young man laying in the parkway and he was defiantly DOA. We saw an on scene supervisor remove a revolver from this shitbag and we saw the other weapon that was also recovered. I saw the news this morning and they said this kid was only playing with fireworks. Where the fuck do they think we are in Mayberry? God help us all its only getting worse in Gorillaville. Nice job officers and stay safe everyone!

No, Grandmammy, we are NOT talking about a kid. we are talking about an armed criminal who AIMED A GUN AT THE POLICE. For that, he gets DRT, DNS.

If you don't run from or point guns at the police chances are excellent that the police won't point guns and shoot at you.

it seems to me they LOST englewood a long time ago.

Fence this shit in let the nigs kill eachother and then bulldoze that shit into the ground,.

I cannot WAIT until CCW comes,
Then instead of the police wasting good ammunition on these shit heads all you gotta do is scratch out a report and call Streets and San to remove the SHIT in the street.
