CHICAGO — Upon learning about the reported shooting of an unarmed 13-year-old by Chicago Police Wednesday night, state Rep. Jawaharial “Omar” Williams, D-Chicago, issued the following statement:

“I am deeply concerned about the shooting of an unarmed 13-year-old by police in response to a carjacking yesterday. It is critical that the appropriate authorities thoroughly investigate this incident so we have a complete and accurate understanding of what happened. While carjackings are never acceptable and must be addressed, we must do so in a way that protects our children from harm. I am praying for the health and safety of everyone involved.”
