Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has invited ministers and community activists to City Hall to discuss the upcoming release of a police car dashcam video that shows a white officer fatally shooting a black teenager last year.

Seventeen-year-old Laquan McDonald was shot 16 times. Police have said he refused to drop a knife.

There is growing concern in the community about what could happen when people see the incident for themselves. A judge last week ordered the video released no later than Wednesday.

City of DeKalb

The DeKalb City Council is debating whether its members should get a pay raise.

The Daily Chronicle reports Alderman Dave Baker wants to increase council members' pay from $5,400 per year to at least $12,000. He says paying more would encourage more candidates to run for the positions.

The council is expected to discuss the proposal at its meeting Monday.

The number of Illinois inmates released on parole has increased as lawmakers look to reduce the prison population.

But funding to help parolees stay out of trouble has dropped dramatically because of the state budget crisis.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the number of parolees has grown 14 percent in the past four years, to more than 28,000.

The newspaper reports the largest concentration of parolees is living on Chicago's west side.

State data show that about half of Illinois households only have wireless phone service.

The Illinois Commerce Commission says 48 percent of households in the state relied on wireless-only service at the end of last year.

Landline use has dropped 36 percent in Illinois from 2005 to 2014. There are about 5 million landline users in Illinois, including Internet- and cable-based lines.

The state has about 13 million wireless subscribers, the commission estimates.

Lee County state's attorney has been charged with driving under the influence after the sheriff says the van she was driving struck a parked car.

Federal prosecutors handed former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock a second subpoena for financial records, texts and emails. That’s part of a grand jury probe into spending by the Peoria Republican.

The new subpoena was disclosed as prosecutor Timothy Bass appeared before U.S. District Court Judge Sue Myerscough. Bass says it's “utter nonsense” Schock hasn't fully complied with a grand jury request issued months ago.

Prosecutors also object to claims of privilege that Schock's attorneys made over some documents being reviewed by Myerscough.

Fox Lake Police Department

Investigators are looking into the wife and son of an Illinois police lieutenant who killed himself during a probe of a youth program he oversaw. They are allegedly two of the individuals with whom he exchanged incriminating text messages, according to an official.

Authorities investigating the September death of Fox Lake Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz released documents containing some texts and Facebook messages he shared with others weeks before he died. The documents identify two of the recipients as Individual 1 and Individual 2.

100 Club of Chicago

An organization that assists survivors of officers killed in the line of duty is asking the family of an Illinois police lieutenant who staged his suicide to return its donation.

100 Club of Chicago CEO Joe Ahern presented a check to Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz's widow for $15,000 when he was found dead two months ago. Ahern said the decision to ask for the funds back came after authorities announced Gliniewicz, of Fox Lake, took his own life amid fears his criminal activities were about to be revealed.

Chicago police say the dismembered toddler found in a lagoon was 2-year-old Kyrian Knox of Rockford.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is crediting Chicago's workforce and its transportation networks for the decision by Kraft Heinz to move Oscar Meyer's headquarters to the city.

Kraft Heinz announced Wednesday about 250 corporate jobs will be relocated from Madison, Wisconsin to Chicago, where Oscar Meyer was founded in 1883.  

The announcement came as the newly-merged company announced it will close seven plants in the U.S. and Canada over the next two years and eliminate 2,600 jobs.
