Family of Bettie Jones settles with city ahead of LeGrier trial

By CBS Chicago

Just days before the trial was to start, the city of Chicago has reached a settlement with the family of Bettie Jones.

She was one of two people shot and killed by a Chicago police officer in 2015 on the city’s West Side.

Jones was killed when Chicago police responded to a teen having a mental health crisis.

She was hit by bullets when an officer shot Quintonio LeGrier, who was holding a baseball bat.
