These events occurred several weeks apart.

CHICAGO -- Tuesday's announcement by the prosecutor states that two officers involved in shooting dead a boy aged 13 and a man aged 22 in two cases of high importance will not face charges.

Kim Foxx, Cook County State's Attorney, stated that there wasn't enough evidence to indict the officers for the deaths of Anthony Alvarez and Adam Toledo.

Both shootings took place within weeks of each another. Both cases were captured on video by the city. Foot pursuits occurred before both shootings, and both suspects had handguns.

Foxx was critical about the officers involved in Alvarez's shooting death at 22 years old, claiming that they had created a dangerous situation. Alvarez was walking and officers stated that they wanted to pursue him due to a traffic incident the previous night.

Foxx stated that the foot pursuit was not necessary. Foxx stated that the officer fired at her in an instance where he was not threatening his life, but she also said that he did so right away.

Foxx met with Alvarez's family and attorney and stated that the family was "unmistakably devastated" and had many questions about why officers hadn't come to their home if they knew they were searching for him.
