Protests in Illinois city over police killing of Black teenager
October 27, 2020
Less than 20 miles south of Kenosha, Wis., where police shot Jacob Blake multiple times in the back in August, leaving him partially paralyzed and sparking days of fiery protests and rioting, a police shooting that left a Black teenager dead and his girlfriend badly wounded last week is stirring anger in Waukegan, Ill.
Marcellis Stinnette, 19, died after a Waukegan police officer fired at a car that police say was driving toward the officer in reverse as he approached it. The driver, Tafara Williams, was badly wounded. Stinnette was a passenger.
