According to My Fox Chicago, a 13-year-old boy was shot eight times by police in Chicago on Monday night.

Cops claim he was holding a BB gun and would not put it down after being ordered to. The boy’s parents, Kenyatta Cannon and Jimmy Porter, said the boy wasn’t holding anything and had his hands in the air when he was shot.

Joe Banks, Sr. (father of boy shot) said his son didn’t deserve to be shot. “[Chicago police] are trigger happy,” he said. “My son is not a gang banger, he’s not selling drugs. He’s a plumber. We’re a decent family.”
