Mexican protesters were filmed jumping atop a bus, clogging city streets and waving Mexican flags out of their vehicles while honking their horns outside of Trump Tower in downtown Chicago as part of Mexican Independence Day celebrations.

Mexican Independence Day was on Monday, September 16, but Joliet’s 57th annual Mexican Independence Day Parade started on Saturday and the protest has gone on for multiple days.

One 16-year-old boy was shot just one hour after the parade started on Saturday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports:
“Surveillance video showed what appears to be a white or Hispanic male, with a thin build, wearing a black T-shirt with white lettering and blue jeans, fire a handgun at the boy then run east through an alley, police said.

Joliet’s 57th annual Mexican Independence Day Parade started about a hour before the shots were fired. The parade’s path took it south on Collins Street towards Cass Street, passing near where the boy was shot.
