Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot addressed the city on Thursday after its police review board released the video of the officer-involved fatal shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo and made an appeal for calm. 

"Even as our understanding of this incident continues to evolve, this remains a complicated and nuanced story," she said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "We all must proceed with deep empathy and calm and importantly, peace."

The city is bracing for the possibility of unrest because the video showed the teen with his hands raised before the shooting.
