CHICAGO (AP) - The Rev. Jesse Jackson plans to lead a march through downtown Chicago in response to newly released police reports about last year’s shooting of a black teenager 16 times by a white officer.

Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition has called for a rally at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at State and Van Buren streets. Demonstrators will march to the Thompson Center.

Jackson says the newly released documents show police “misrepresenting” what happened the night of Laquan McDonald’s death. Jackson has reiterated his call for “a full, thorough investigation with subpoena power” and says it’s time to escalate the protests.

The city Friday released hundreds of pages of documents related to the October 2014 killing of McDonald by Jason Van Dyke, a white police officer. Van Dyke has been charged with first-degree murder.
