“You had a gun,” Solano responded.

The Chicago Police officer who shot and killed Anthony Alvarez, 22, back in March in the Portage Park neighborhood has been stripped of his police powers – but Alvarez’s family wants more action taken than that.

Two months ago, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability – which investigates police shootings – recommended that Officer Evan Solano be stripped of his police powers. Only now is action being taken.

It is unclear why the department waited until now to do so.

Video of the shooting showed Alvarez holding a gun in his right hand as he was running away from Solano around 12:20 a.m. on March 31, 2021. Solano could be heard ordering Alvarez to drop the gun just before shooting him as Alvarez’s back was still turned to the officer in the front yard of a home in the 5200 block of West Eddy Street.
