The teen's father called police and then called his downstairs neighbor, Jones, to open the door when officers arrived, WLS said.

When police came, LeGrier was charging down the stairs still carrying the bat, the affiliate reported. Police opened fire, and both LeGrier and Jones were shot.

LeGrier says he called his downstairs neighbor, 55-year-old Bettie Jones, and warned her about his son and not to open the door unless police arrived. He says Jones told him she saw Quintonio outside with a baseball bat.

When police arrived, LeGrier says he started making his way down from the second floor and heard gunshots. He says he saw his son and Jones lying in the foyer.

He says his son had emotional problems, but that it didn't warrant him getting shot and killed.



12:48 p.m.

The brother of a 55-year-old woman shot and killed by a Chicago police officer says his sister was the mother of four daughters and a son.

Melvin Jones tells the Chicago Tribune that more than a dozen family members celebrated Christmas with Bettie Jones on Friday. Jones says his sister "had an excellent Christmas."

Authorities say Bettie Jones and 19-year-old Quintonio LeGrier were killed early Saturday when police responded to a domestic disturbance call.

Bettie Jones, a neighbor of LeGrier, lived in a first-floor apartment with her boyfriend. Her children range in age from 19 to 38. They include 19-year-old twins.

Melvin Jones says he's "numb right now." He says there is "a whole lot of anger, a whole lot of tears."



12:20 p.m.

The mother of a 19-year-old man shot and killed by a Chicago police officer says her son was studying engineering at Northern Illinois University.

Janet Cooksey tells the Chicago Tribune that Quintonio LeGrier graduated from Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy in Chicago and "was going somewhere." Authorities say LeGrier and 55-year-old Bettie Jones, both of Chicago, died in the police shooting early Saturday.
