JIM WILLIAMS: Former Congressman Luis Gutierrez is denouncing Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx for her handling of the Adam Toledo investigation.

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. You muzzled us.

JIM WILLIAMS: 13-year-old Toledo was fatally shot by a Chicago Police officer in Little Village last month. Police bodycam video shows Toledo dropping the gun before the officer shoots him in the chest.

Before that video was released, a prosecutor from Foxx's office misstated in court that Toledo was holding a gun in his hand when he was shot. Gutierrez criticized Foxx for not looking at the video herself. The prosecutor who made that misstatement has been placed on administrative leave. Gutierrez says Foxx's handling of the Toledo case has eroded the trust in the Latinx community.
