Large Riots Declared Throughout Chicago After a 16 Year Old Was Killed
UPDATE: 5/15/2022 at 1:37am EST
We removed the original detail where a source had said the boy was allegedly killed by police. This detail has been completely debunked, although who killed the boy is still unknown. This 16 year old was shot and killed near The Bean on East Randolph street around 7:30pm, Chicago time. Police say he was struck in the chest.
This is a developing story and we will keep updating.

Here we go again. We don’t have all the information on the alleged 16 year old boy who was killed, but reports are saying riots are due to that situation.
You can listen to the Chicago police scanner below thanks to Rawalerts on Twitter.
Mayor Lightfoot’s city is being destroyed once again. Listening to the scanner, you can hear that there are multiple batteries, assaults, robberies, shots fired and more taking place during the riots so far. This will likely be a consistent thing again this summer, and the fact that we have food supply issues this time will likely exacerbate the riots.
We’ll update this post throughout the riots overnight, so keep it here.
