Teen Shot by Police; Family Claims He Didn’t Have A Gun

Chicago Police have shot and killed three suspects in the past week. The latest incident happened Wednesday evening in Englewood, where a police sergeant stopped two men, one of which matched the suspect description in a battery call. Suspect Kajuan Rayes and his buddy took off on foot, running in separate directions. The sergeant pursued Kajuan and during the foot chase, police say the young man pointed a gun at the officer. Twice. Shots were fired and Kajuan ended up dead, but police found no weapon.

Now the family is trying the officer in the court of public opinion.
The family described Mr. Raye to anyone who would listen as a ‘fun-loving and happy kid’ who had a ‘bright future’ ahead of him. They said that while he no longer attended high school, he was going to get his GED and become a veterinarian. How did they know? Because he loved dogs and watched Animal Planet all the time.

His family says the teen did nothing wrong. His cousin says he didn’t have a gun. The family provided a couple of pictures to the media, including one of Kajuan in a tux.

They neglected to share some photos from social media accounts.
