A music school on Chicago's North Side reopened Monday, nearly two weeks after a teenage intern was mistakenly shot by a police officer during a shootout with a bank robbery suspect.
Rylan Wilder, a 15-year-old Lane Tech High School student and musician, was at UpBeat Music and Arts on Nov. 19 when a bank robbery suspect ran inside the school and exchanged gunfire with police officers. Wilder was accidentally injured in the crossfire by a Des Plaines police officer.
The suspect who ran inside, Christopher Terrell Willis, was shot and killed by police after shooting a Chicago police officer. Wilder's parents filed a lawsuit against the surviving bank robbery suspect, Maurice Murphy.
Wilder's band "Monarchy Over Monday" performed at a benefit concert to raise money for the teen's medical bills Saturday evening.
UpBeat Music and Arts had been closed since the shooting.
