Teen musician shot accidentally by officer: "Will I ever be able to play guitar again?"
A teen musician shot accidentally by an Illinois officer pursuing a robbery suspect last week isn't sure whether he will be able to play the guitar again, the teen's family told reporters Monday when they detailed his injuries in an emotional statement. Rylan Wilder, 15, was shot November 19 by a Des Plaines police officer who had chased a gunman suspected of robbing a bank and wounding a Chicago police officer into the Chicago music school where Wilder was interning. The robbery suspect, identified by police as Christopher Willis, was shot and killed by the Des Plaines officer, reports the Chicago Tribune. Chicago police initially said Willis exchanged shots with the Des Plaines officer inside the music school, the Tribune reports, but later said only the Des Plaines officer opened fire. Tuesday, a judge ordered both Chicago and Des Plaines police to turn over bodycam footage to the family within 31 days, reports Chicago station WLS-TV.cbsnews.com
