- Minutes before police fatally shot 19-year-old Quintonio LeGrier, he called 911 multiple times — and begged to have officers sent to his father’s home — but they were not initially dispatched, according to emergency recordings released on Monday.
An officer shot LeGrier six times in December after the teenager advanced on officers with a baseball bat, according to police. The officer also accidentally shot neighbor Bettie Jones once in the chest, killing her, too.
The Independent Police Review Authority, which is investigating the shootings, made LeGrier’s three 911 calls public on Monday, as well as one from his father, Antonio.
So are they clearing the officer now? It certainly isn't the Department's fault that OEMC dropped the ball and antagonized a mentally ill individual leading to his unwise decision to swing a baseball bat at responding officers. There's plenty of room under the bus for Rahm to toss everyone under it.
