Body cam shows cop shooting unarmed 13-year-old with hands up, paralysing him


Another unarmed 13-year-old was shot by a Chicago police officer. The boy's hands were up; he posed no danger, and he was only a passenger in a car that was suspected of being stolen. Since that day, more than two months have passed, and we have recently heard that the officer who shot the youngster did not activate his body camera. However, a nearby officer had his camera on and recorded the shooting on film.

One week after their son was shot, the boy's parents filed a lawsuit against the city and the Chicago police department, alleging that the agency has been too tardy in enacting changes to address CPD's "long sordid history of employing excessive force." As evidence, their son's paralysis after a shooting

"This little boy's life has been irrevocably altered," said the family's attorney, Andrew M. Stroth. This energetic little child is struggling to regain his ability to walk.

Since he was shot on May 18, the youngster, known only as A.G. in the complaint, has been hospitalised. According to the complaint, the bullet struck him in the spine and left him with "permanent and catastrophic" injuries.

According to the complaint, A.G. was fleeing the gunman; he was unarmed; he presented no danger to the officer who shot him or anybody else in the area. "Multiple witnesses at the scene testified that A.G. obeyed the officers' instruction to raise his hands, and his hands were definitely up when John Doe Officer shot him,"

This officer, labelled as John Doe, has been recognised as Noah Ball. Additionally, it has come to light that Ball did not activate his camera until after he shot the youngster.

According to the police, they were investigating a suspected carjacker driving a stolen vehicle. The toddler was not the driver, but when police stopped the car, he leapt from the backseat and fled. He was never formally accused of a crime.

Chicago police said in a statement that at 10:15 p.m., officers were trying to "intercept a stolen car sought in connection with a vehicle hijacking from a nearby suburb" in the 800 block of North Cicero Avenue.

Police would say that when the toddler ran away, he "turned toward cops" for a moment before one of them opened fire and killed the helpless child. The youngster stopped, but he raised his hands in the air and had them up when the officer opened fire.

"All of a sudden, I saw a little man dressed in all black exit the vehicle and dash toward the petrol station with his hands up," an unidentified witness told ABC7.

"And I saw the officer approach the youngster and begin firing." "He had no weapon whatsoever," the witness said.

"They said, 'Raise your hands, raise your hands!'" The child's hands were raised. There are others who have seen it. It was everything on my phone, and his hands were raised. "He was unarmed," the witness said. They shot him without justification.

Tim M. Grace, an attorney for Ball, said that his client was right to kill the boy because the boy "aimed" his phone at the police officer.

"Police officers must make split-second choices, and the law not only recognises but also permits this." "Illinois law instructs us not to evaluate these situations with 20/20 hindsight, but rather from the perspective of a reasonable law enforcement officer," he told ABC 7.

Officer Ball can be heard shouting that he has a gun. Ball believed that the pointed object was a firearm. "The dark object in his hand that he pointed at the officers was actually a large cell phone," Grace wrote.

Officer Ball had no cover or concealment, so he had to make a split-second decision. He fired his service weapon to eliminate the danger.

However, there was no danger.

"The police were not required to shoot him. "If he got out of the car running and he wasn’t a threat, they didn’t have to shoot him," said a neighbour in her 70s who lives a block from the gas station. I'm so sad. He is only 13 years old... they lack guidance. "

Below is the first video captured by the gas station's surveillance camera. It shows multiple officers chasing after A.G. before he’s shot and collapses.

Cops Pursue Unarmed 13-Year-Old Boy, Shoot Him When He Raises His Hands


Another unarmed 13-year-old was shot by Chicago police officers. The boy's hands were up, he posed no danger, and he was only a passenger in a car that was suspected of being stolen.

This Monday, the boy's parents filed a lawsuit against the city and the Chicago police department, alleging that CPD's "long sordid history of deploying excessive force" contributed to the shooting of their son.

Since he was shot on May 18, the kid known only as A.G. in the complaint has been hospitalised in serious condition. According to the complaint, the bullet struck him in the spine and has left him with "permanent and catastrophic" injuries.

A.G. was fleeing the gunman, he was unarmed, and he presented no danger to the officer who shot him or anybody else in the area, according to the complaint. "Multiple witnesses at the scene testified that A.G. obeyed the officers' instruction to raise his hands, and his hands were definitely up when John Doe Officer shot him,"

According to the police, they were investigating a suspected carjacker driving a stolen vehicle. The toddler was not the driver, but when police stopped the car, he leapt from the backseat and fled.

In the 800 block of North Cicero Avenue around 10:15 p.m., officers were attempting to "intercept a stolen car sought in connection with a vehicular hijacking from a nearby suburb," according to a statement from Chicago police.

Police would allege that when the toddler fled, he momentarily "turned toward cops" before one of them opened fire and fatally wounded the defenceless child. The youngster did stop, but he was raising his hands in the air and had them up when the officer opened fire.

A witness who did not want to be recognised told ABC7, "All of a sudden, I saw a little man dressed in all black exit the vehicle and dash toward the petrol station with his hands up."

"And I saw the officer approach the youngster and begin firing. "He had no weapon whatsoever," the witness said.

"They said, 'Raise your hands, raise your hands!'" The child's hands were raised. There are others who have seen it. It was everything on my phone, and his hands were raised. "He was unarmed," the witness said. They shot him without justification.

David Brown, chief of police for the city of Chicago, said that no guns were fired at cops.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, police body camera footage of the incident was sent to COPA, along with footage from a police POD surveillance camera and a third-party camera, the agency said in a statement. "However, since the victim is a minor, COPA is prevented by law from releasing the video in accordance with a municipal regulation mandating the publication of most videos within 60 days."

COPA similarly withheld the publication of footage depicting the execution of Adam Toledo. Now, A.G.'s mother is requesting the release of this body camera video as well.

If this boy was engaged in the first carjacking, he deserved to be punished. Nevertheless, it is not the responsibility of the Chicago police force to act as judge, juror, and executioner. Now, rather than facing punishment and learning from his errors, this 13-year-old youngster may spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, with Chicago taxpayers footing the tab.

"The cops were not required to shoot him. "They didn't have to kill him if he ran out of the vehicle and he was not a danger," claimed a lady in her 70s who lives a block from the petrol station. "I'm so sad. He is just 13 years old.... they need leadership."

Below is the first footage captured by the petrol station's security camera. It depicts numerous cops pursuing A.G. before he is shot and falls to the ground.

Although it is unclear if A.G. had his hands up in the footage above, it is evident in the video below, caught by a pod camera and acquired by WGN, that his hands were in the air when he was shot.
