COPA stands by its recommendation to fire the Chicago officer who fatally shot Anthony Alvarez

In this Saturday, May 1, 2021 file photo, Ailani Alvarez, 2, daughter of Anthony Alvarez who was shot by the police, holds a sign reading “I miss my daddy” during a protest in Chicago. Chicago police officers will no longer be allowed to chase people on foot simply because they run away or give chase over minor offenses, the department said Tuesday, June 21, 2022, more than a year after two foot pursuits ended with officers fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy and 22-year-old man.

COPA stands by its recommendation to fire the Chicago officer who fatally shot Anthony Alvarez

The 46-page report from COPA includes eyewitness accounts of the fatal shooting and restates that ‘the evidence in this case shows that Mr. Alvarez was attempting to flee without the use of force.” Police Supt. Brown has not taken COPA’s recommendations to dismiss the officer who shot Alvarez.
