    Chicago (CNN)Mayor Rahm Emanuel is asking the people of Chicago to come together and work for peace as protesters take to city streets.

    Police released dash-cam video Tuesday showing the shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who was killed by an officer in October 2014.

    "I believe this is a moment that can build bridges of understanding rather than become a barrier of misunderstanding. I understand that the people will be upset and will want to protest when they see this video," Emanuel said. "We as a city must rise to this moment."

    Chicago has been preparing for protests in advance of the video's release, which was ordered by a judge to happen no later than Wednesday.

    McDonald was a black teenager. The officer who shot him, Jason Van Dyke, is white.

    He was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in McDonald's death and is being held without bond.

    Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy acknowledged that residents "have a right to be angry."

    Raeisha Williams, communications chair of the Minneapolis NAACP, told CNN that members of law enforcement were “behind” the Monday night shooting of Black Lives Matter protesters.

    During an interview on Tuesday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked Williams to react to breaking news that two men had been arrested in connection to shootings that injured at least five people who were protesting the killing of Jamar Clark.

    “We’re hearing two [arrests] at this time,” Williams explained. “But we don’t necessarily trust that. We know that the police department is behind this, this is our personal belief after receiving witness accounts.”

    “Wait, wait, wait,” Baldwin interrupted. “You said you believe the police department is behind what?”

    “We believe the police department is facilitating the injustice, bullying the protesters,” Williams replied. “And we also believe that they’re involved in this shooting. We know from blackboards and chat rooms and also videos that we have posted on our website that police that are from different counties, police from different districts have come down to entice the protesters, have come down to bully the protesters.”

    Baldwin, who was broadcasting from Paris, noted that Williams had made “serious allegations” on national television.

    “And we are standing behind it, we do not back down from these allegations,” Williams insisted.

    “Where is your evidence that they were involved in the shooting?” Baldwin pressed.

    According to Williams, police were “lurking” near the shooting and then refused to provide help to the injured protesters.

    “This is what you’ve been wanting,” she recalled one of the officers saying.

    “It took 15 minutes for the police to even arrive and shortly after that, they began to Mace the crowd,” Williams said. “So if you’re not part of the problem, if this is not something you’re trying to cover up, why would you not attend to victims who paid for your salaries?”
