Another GOOD Shooting
Eighteen-year-old Luis Colon was shot and killed by police.
Police cordoned off the area where the shooting occurred at 5 p.m. in the 2700-block of North Kilbourn. Police were reportedly questioning several people in connection to the case.
A police source told ABC7 that officers approached a group of young people on the street and one man turned and walked away. When officers tried to stop him, the source said that person reached for a weapon in his waistband and pointed it at officers. Then, officials said, the officers opened fire. Witnesses said they heard six shots fired.
- "They're here to serve and protect, not to kill," said mother Maria Colon, crying. "They're killing innocent people."
- "They could've shot him in the leg. They could've shot him in the arm. Why did they shoot to kill him?" said Maria Colon in tears.
