WEST CHICAGO – State Senator Karina Villa (D-West Chicago) issued the following statement following the fatal shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo:

“As a former middle school social worker, I can’t imagine the pain Adam’s family, community and school are going through after watching the horrific video of his senseless killing.
