- Time now, 6:09. Protesters march in front of Chicago's police department, calling for the abolition of the police following the fatal officer involved shooting of a teenage boy. A police oversight agency released video of an officer shooting and killing the 13-year-old boy. We do want to warn you this video is very disturbing. CBS Monica Rix reports.

MONICA RIX: Protesters gathered in front of Chicago's police department last night hours after body camera footage was released showing an officer shoot 13-year-old Adam Toledo. The chase last month lasted 20 seconds before officer Eric Stillman opened fire. Police say they were responding to gunshots picked up by an audio scanner. The family's attorney insists Toledo was unarmed when he was shot.

ADEENA WEISS ORTIZ: Those videos speak for themselves. Adam, during his last second of life did not have a gun in his hand. The officer screamed at him, show me your hands, Adam complied, turned around, his hands were empty when he was shot in the chest.

MONICA RIX: Police say Toledo did have a gun on him before the shooting and that a semiautomatic pistol was recovered a few feet away from where the teen was shot. Chicago's mayor says there's an ongoing independent investigation into the officer's actions from the city's civilian office of police accountability.

MONICA RIX: This is about being respectful and balancing the need for transparency with this grieving family that's having an extraordinarily difficult time. In addition to Officer Stillman's body cam footage, the police department also released footage from other body cams, 911 calls, and several audio recordings from the device that picked up those initial gunshots that led police to the area.

- Officer Stillman who is now on administrative leave trying to revive Toledo but the boy was pronounced dead at the scene. It'll be up to the Cook County state attorney's office whether to charge Stillman in his death.
