Quintonio LeGrier called 911 three times before being fatally shot by Officer Robert Rialmo outside his fathers home in Chicago.

The officer who shot and killed Black Chicago teen Quintonio LeGrier is planning to file a lawsuit against the estate of LeGrier. Citing emotional stress and assault, the news was delivered via Officer Robert Rialmo’s attorney on Thursday.

Chicago outlet WGN spoke with Rialmo’s attorney Joel Brodsky, who confirmed his client’s aims in filing the suit in the next couple of weeks.On Dec. 26, Rialmo answered a domestic disturbance call and claims LeGrier attacked him thus the reason for the suit. The LeGrier family contends that Rialmo’s used an excessive amount of force, shooting LeGrier in the back four times. Bettie Jones, a mother of five, was also accidently shot and killed by Rialmo.


 

LeGrier family attorney Bill Foutris joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now  to discuss the lawsuit filed by the Chicago Police Officer Robert Rialmo, the cop who shot and killed Quintonio LeGrier. Watch their conversation below.

TV One’s NewsOne Now has moved to 7 A.M. ET, be sure to watch “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, in its new time slot on TV One.


According to CBS 2 in Chicago, the LeGrier and Jones families have filed suits against the city. Jones family attorney Larry Rogers Jr. says that he and his team are fighting to get all dash cam footage and other related material from that fateful night released to the public.

Further, it was reported that LeGrier called 911 three times the night he was killed before police finally responded. Rogers has requested the names and job titles of the dispatchers working that evening when his client was shot. Allegedly, the dispatcher hung up on LeGrier.

Legrier family Bill Foutris called Rialmo’s lawsuit plans a “desperate” and “baseless” attempt to keep the attention off the fact he may have been out of line in handling the matter, reports CBS 2.
