(Chicago) Ricardo “Ricky” Hayes at the time was a 18-year-old man with developmental and psychiatric disabilities. On Aug. 13, 2017, he left his home and went running and skipping down the street. Off-duty police officer Sgt. Khalil Muhammad saw him and shot him, unprovoked. Hayes survived. Later, two police officers filed suit against the City of Chicago, claiming they were demoted when they refused to falsify reports to justify Muhammad’s shooting. The City of Chicago settled the shooting for $2.25 million. Muhammad was given a six-month suspension for the shooting, but was allowed to keep his job despite admitting he had no legal justification for shooting Hayes.
