Chicago police fatally shoot Quintonia LeGrier and Bettie Jones responding to domestic call

Responding to a domestic disturbance call around 4:20 a.m. Saturday, Chicago police officers shot and killed both Quintonio LeGrier, a 19-year-old college student, and Bettie Jones, a 55-year-old woman who lived on the ground floor of the LeGriers’ West Garfield Park home. LeGrier’s father, Antonio Le Grier, called the police after his son — who was “dealing with mental issues” — menaced him with a bat. "In my opinion, he knew he had messed up.”
