COPA rules shooting of Quintonio LeGrier, Bettie Jones was unjustified


A Chicago police watchdog group ruled Thursday that the deadly 2015 shooting of 19-year-old Quintonio LeGrier and 55-year-old Bettie Jones was unjustified.

The Civilian Office of Accountability ruled that Officer Robert Rialmo unjustifiably shot LeGrier and Jones on Chicago’s West Side while he was responding to a domestic disturbance call.

The agency said a “reasonable officer” would not have believed he or she was in danger.
