"In the evening hours of October 23, 2020 the City of Waukegan terminated the officer that discharged his firearm during that incident, for multiple policy and procedure violations", Walles said in a statement.

Police said the incident began when they received a report of a suspicious vehicle just before midnight on Tuesday, but the families of both victims said they were just sitting in their auto outside Williams' mother's home.

Moments later, a second police officer spotted the vehicle near Martin Luther King Jr.

As the second officer approached the auto, police said Williams started reversing towards him and he fired his gun into the vehicle. The officer who conducted the original traffic stop is white, police said.

Activist Chris Blanks said Thursday that the police video of the shooting is particularly important because the police version of events and the version Clifftina Johnson said her wounded daughter, Williams, shared with her appear to contradict each other.

In a video obtained by CNN affiliate WLS, the driver, Tafarra Williams, spoke out from her hospital bed, asking of the police, "Why did you shoot?" "My daughter said she put her hand up, and if she didn't put her hand up, she said, 'Mama, I would be dead'".

"We're not here to rip up our own town", Clyde McLemore, the Lake County chapter president of Black Lives Matter, said before the rally and march.

The woman's comments come as the relatives of the two who were shot, activists and even the family of a man who was shot by police in nearby Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August called on authorities to release more information about the Waukegan shooting as well as any video that might have shown what happened.
