Kanye West Donates $150,000 For Security Guard Killed By Officer In Chicago

The responding officer fatally shot Roberson in his side, after giving him “multiple verbal commands to drop the gun and get on the ground,” according to a statement filed by Illinois State Police, citing witnesses.
Roberson’s mother, Beatrice Roberson, sued for more than $1 million, listing the unnamed responding officer and the village of Midlothian as defendants.

Outrage following the killing

Many have expressed outrage and concerns of alleged racial bias in this latest instance of police killing a black man.
US Sen. Corey Booker, D-New Jersey, tweeted, “Words can’t begin to describe my horror and outrage.”
US Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Illinois, called the shooting “heartbreaking.”
Actress Gabrielle Union also tweeted, saying that Roberson was brave and that “his life was snatched.”
    “My baby lost his father, his hero” Avontae Boose, the mother of Roberson’s son, told CNN affiliate WLS. “Jemel loved his babies so much.”
    Correction: A previous version of this story misstated the city where security guard Jemel Roberson was fatally shot. It was in Robbins, Illinois.
