A number of family members and supporters of four black youths fatally shot by Chicago police are calling for change.

The group gathered Wednesday night outside a police station in the city’s Bronzeville neighborhood, commemorating the birthday of one of the victims and demanding the department modify the way it handles police-involved shootings.

Rekia Boyd, who would have turned 24 on Wednesday, was fatally shot by off-duty Chicago police officer Dante Servin in March 2012. Servin has since been charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless discharge of a firearm and reckless conduct, and will be due in court when his trial begins Dec. 3.
