CBS 2's Suzanne Le Mignot has the story of a mother's outrage.

Two workers at Chicago’s 911 center have been suspended without pay after failing to send police to assist Quintonio LeGrier, who called 911 three times for help on Dec. 26 from his father’s West Side apartment, reports the Washington Post.

LeGrier, 19, was later shot and killed by police who eventually responded to the scene, becoming the latest example of deadly force used by police in communities of color, especially when people are in crisis.

From the Post:

OEMC spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said Tuesday one of the call-takers from OEMC was given a three-day suspension for failing to send a squad car after the teen claimed in his first call that his life was being threatened. The person who picked up LeGrier’s second 911 call was suspended for one day.

Chicago police officer Robert Rialmo fatally shot LeGrier, claiming that he was coming at him with a bat. Rialmo also shot and killed a neighbor, 55-year-old Bettie Jones, in what police describe as an accident.
