CHICAGO- Angry about the police shooting of a 14-year-old boy, Cabrini-Green residents took the streets Tuesday, lashing out at police and the abuse they feel in increasingly affluent surroundings.
Marchers shouted at police, threw bottles at cars and decried the shooting of Ellis Woodland, who remained in critical condition with bullet wounds in his abdomen and thigh. Police determined Tuesday that the shooting was justified.
