Gutierrez says mistakes made by Kim Foxx's office leading up to the video released that shows the 13-year-old Toledo being shot and killed by a CPD officer amount to what he calls an "abandonment" of the Latino community.

LUIS GUTIERREZ: Your office turned a 13-year-old boy into a gun and effectively silenced many of us in our community. You silenced our voice.
