A Chicago watchdog group that investigated the 2015 police shooting deaths of Quintonio LeGrier and Bettie Jones have ruled the slayings "unjustified."
The Cook County State's Attorney's office said Friday that no criminal charges will come against Chicago, Illinois police officer Robert Rialmo, who fatally shot 19-year-old Quintonio LeGrier and mistakenly Bettie Jones, who was a grandmother standing by LeGrier during a fatal incident in 2015.
Many are outraged that an officer under investigation for fatal shootings was returned to street duty. Officials claim it was a mistake.
The city of Chicago has begun a $5.5 million payout of reparations to nearly 60 individuals who were tortured by the police in the 1970s and 1980s.
The family of a woman Chicago police say was accidentally shot by an officer have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city.
Arguing that Quintonio LeGrier, 19, was unarmed when Chicago police shot and killed him over the weekend, his father on Monday filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the city, reports DNAinfo Chicago.
Two individuals, identified as a 19-year-old college student and a 55-year-old-woman, were fatally shot by Chicago police as officers were responding to a domestic dispute early Saturday morning.
