Religious and community leaders from Chicago held a protest this morning during the MLK prayer breakfast of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has been criticized considerably because of his mishandling of the police killing of unarmed 17 year old Laquan McDonald.

About 20 protesters stood outside of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Chicago yelling “sixteen shots!”, representing the number of times the teenager was shot by Chicago Police Oficer Jason Van Dyke.

The protests come the day after the police finally release a video from 2013 that shows another Black teenager being fatally shot by police. Images from a surveillance camera show a police officer draw his weapon and shoot 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman, a carjacking suspect, as he ran from police.
