A sad day here in the twin cities of Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. Fifteen year old Kiwane Carrington was shot and killed, by an unnamed officer.
Police were called to investigate two teens apparently trying to gain access to a home in Champaign. Responding were Chief of Police, R.T. Finney, and an unnamed patrol officer. A "scuffle" at the scene with the two 15 year olds resulted in the death of young Mr. Carrington.
Very little information has been released at this time, however, at least one radio station has reported that he was shot in the back.
considerable amount of tension, concern, and grief in my community right now.
Prayers for the Carrington family today.
