Stephon Watts

Stephon Watts, who was autistic and 15-years old, was shot and killed last month in the town of Calumet City in Illinois. Officers allege that Watts attacked them with a knife, but the boy’s father say that the only thing his son had in his hand was a butter knife as he tried to pry open a locked cabinet that held his computer. Police have been called to the Watts home several times, which the father was instructed to do by hospital officials. The elder Watts said when police arrived, his boy was already calm. A lawsuit in the case is pending.
