A Chicago prosecutor was placed on leave Saturday after he claimed in a court hearing this month that Adam Toledo, a 13-year-old boy fatally shot by police, had a gun in his possession. 

In an April bond hearing for 21-year-old Ruben Roman, a man who was with Toledo on the night that he died, Assistant State’s Atty. James Murphy appeared to claim that the boy had a gun on him. 

Following news of the comment, a spokesperson for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office said Thursday that the prosecutor did not "fully inform himself" before testifying. 

“An attorney who works in this office failed to fully inform himself before speaking in court,” the spokesperson said. 

“Errors like that cannot happen and this has been addressed with the individual involved. The video speaks for itself,” they continued.
