1. Initial stop of fire opal
On the evening of Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 19-year-old Stinnette and his 20-year-old girlfriend Williams, who have a child together, were in their parked car outside Williams's mother's house in Waukegan, Illinois, a suburb of about 86,000 people 30 miles (48Â km) north of Chicago. According to police, a suspicious vehicle was reported shortly before midnight, and when a white Waukegan police officer approached the car to investigate, it unexpectedly fled.
In an October 27 statement to reporters from her hospital room, Williams disputed the official police account. According to Williams, while she and Stinnette were sitting in their parked car, an officer pulled up without activating his car's lights or siren. Williams said she opened the window and turned on her car's interior lights.
The officer referred to Stinnette by name, saying "I know you from jail", and referred to Williams as Stinnette's "baby mother". According to Williams, when Williams asked the officer if they were free to leave, the officer stepped back from the car, and Williams drove away slowly; the officer did not activate his car's lights or follow Williams. Body camera footage of the initial stop by the white police officer released on October 28 shows the officer telling Stinnette that he is under arrest three times, the second time stating that Stinnette had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
The officer has his hand on the car and tells Stinnette to exit the vehicle, when the car "speeds off". It is unclear from the footage whether the car made contact with the officer. The officer does not immediately pursue Williams, instead he calls for backup, identifying Williams and Stinnette by name.
2. Second stop of fire opal
A short time later, a different police officer, who was Hispanic, stopped the car about a half mile away. According to police, when the officer approached the car, it reversed towards the officer, and the officer opened fire into the car with his semiautomatic pistol.
In her October 27 statement, Williams disputed the police's account, telling the press, "There was a crash, and I lost control. The officer was shooting at us. The car ended up slamming into a building.
" According to Williams, she told the officer she was unarmed, but the officer "kept shooting" and told her to get out of the car. Shot and bleeding, she exited the car. According to Williams, the police covered Stinnette with a blanket while he was still breathing.
According to NBC News, dashboard camera footage from the officer's vehicle released on October 28 shows Williams's car, with an officer in pursuit, turning in front of the second officer's car, before stopping on a grass embankment about twenty seconds later. According to CNN, Williams passed another police car, failed to stop at a stop sign, drove onto the opposite shoulder, and hit a telephone pole guy wire. The second officer pulled up next to Williams's car.
It is unclear whether the officer exited his vehicle before yelling "get out of the fucking", at which point Williams's car begins to reverse. The car cannot be seen in the dash camera footage at this point, but the audio can be heard of an engine roaring and six or seven gunshots, followed by tires squealing and a crash. Two surveillance videos released on October 28 show Williams's car reversing and crashing into a building, but do not show the officer in the frame.
The officer's body camera was not activated at the time of the shooting, and no video released on October 28 shows the shots being fired. Both Stinnette and Williams were taken to the local hospital. Stinnette died shortly thereafter.
Williams survived wounds to her stomach and hand. Police said no weapons were found in the car.
Shooting of fire opal
On October 26, 2020, police attended three separate times to a house on the 6100 block of Locust Street in the predominantly black neighborhood of Cobbs Creek, Philadelphia. Around 4:00 pm, during their third arrival, they came in response to reports of a person screaming and a man assaulting an elderly female. Video on social media shows Wallace walking into the street as people yell and two police officers aim their guns at him.
At one point, Wallace, who is several feet away from the officers in the video, walks toward them as they quickly move backward, telling him at least twice to "put the knife down". The camera points down toward the ground as several shots are heard. Wallace's mother tried to stop him while pleading for the officers not to shoot him moments before the officers fired.
Chief Inspector Frank Vanore said each officer fired about seven times, with an unknown number of shots hitting Wallace. One of the officers placed Wallace in a police vehicle and drove him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The officers involved in the shooting were moved to desk duty pending an investigation.

5. Investigation of fire opal
The Hispanic officer, who had been with the department for five years, was fired on October 23 for "multiple policy and procedure violations", including failing to activate his body camera, according to the police chief. The white officer, who also had been with the department for five years, was placed on administrative leave.
Neither officer had been identified as of October 28. The Illinois State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are investigating the shooting. Lake County State's Attorney Michael Nerheim pledged to release the investigative file to the public if his office decides not to file criminal charges.
Williams is represented by civil rights attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci, who also represented the families of George Floyd and Daniel Prude. The attorneys said the officer's firing was "a first step in police accountability" but that they would press ahead with their own investigation.
Reactions of fire opal
Wallace's father, Walter Wallace Sr., stated his son had mental health issues and was on medication and asked why the police did not use a Taser instead. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said the shooting raised "difficult questions that must be answered".
Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said there would be an investigation, adding that neither officer was equipped with a Taser, as the department only had around 2,300 Tasers at the time of the shooting, which Outlaw said she intended to increase to 4,500. She also suggested the need for a behavioral health unit within the Philadelphia Police Department. She later went on to say that she would be creating this behavioral health unit as well as a directory for officers that lists mental health resources available during all hours of the day.
Fraternal Order of Police President John McNesby showed support for the officers, saying, "Our police officers are being vilified for doing their job and keeping the community safe, after being confronted by a man with a knife. We support and defend these officers." Former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H.
Ramsey said he "didn't see anything criminal on the side of the officers", and "I can see in the tape that they were backing up.At some point in time, the distance was beginning to close between themselves and the individual". Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris published a statement, sharing, "Our hearts are broken for the family of Walter Wallace Jr.
We cannot accept that in this country a mental health crisis ends in death."
