Chicago police shoot 16-year-old, prompting protests

More than one hundred people have gathered in Chicago for a vigil and protest after the lethal shooting of a 16-year-old by a police officer.

The demonstrations Tuesday came a day after coroners declare Pierre L. Loury died at a hospital.

Chicago Chief of Detectives Eugene Roy says the teen ran from a car believed to be connected to an earlier shooting. Roy says an officer chased the teen and an "armed confrontation" resulted in the officer shooting Loury. He says a weapon found at the scene was taken into evidence.

But Loury'south mother tells WBBM-TV her son didn't have a gun. The boy'south stepfather says the family wants justice.

Local media report the vigil was held at the site of the shooting. Protesters then marched through streets, sometimes disrupting traffic.

The shooting is under investigation.
