There will be a press conference held at the building where Brendon Park was murdered by Chicago police Tuesday night
Press Conference On Brendan Polk Shooting
Friday, October 26, 10am
4525 S. State (on State St. side of building)

Witness testimony says that Wednesday's shooting was yet another police execution of a young man at the Robert Taylor Homes (RTH). There have been four young men executed by police at RTH this year--Eugene Guy, Antoine Thomas, Ronald Terry, and now Brandon Polk.

Witnesses saw police shoot him 3 times in the first floor hallway, then they dragged his body up to the second floor for some reason. Shell casings were found on the first floor. Police were seen cleaning up the blood from the first floor hallway.

Two of the young men who were with Polk are now in jail. Police claim that the men were aiming guns at them. But witnesses say Polk and the others had no weapons and were defenseless.

More details are forthcoming. A formal press release will be issued later tonight.
