Appeal for calm as video shows 13-year-old shot dead by Chicago policeman

BBC, 17 Apr 2021
The mayor of Chicago has appealed for calm after the release of footage showing an unarmed boy aged 13 being shot dead by a policeman last month.

The video shows Adam Toledo with his hands up and with no weapon. The police film shows a handgun near the spot where he fell.

The teenager's death comes at a time of high tension in the US about police killings.
