The family of an autistic teen who was fatally shot by police in Calumet City rallied in protest of the shooting on Saturday.

Family members were joined by religious leaders and autism advocacy groups in denouncing what they say was the unnecessary deadly forced used against Stephon Watts.

The 15-year-old was killed last February after police were called to his home because of violent behavior.

Saturday's rally was in front of the same house. The group later marched to the Caulmet City Police Station.
