Chicago Police commissioner of the 1st district, Richard Boykin, said there were a lot of “unanswered and troubled questions” regarding the fatal shooting of a man and woman this weekend. Police were called to an apartment complex on Saturday following a domestic disturbance. Quintonio LeGrier, 19, a Northern Illinois University student, who family members say has mental illness issues, was killed after being shot 7 times by police officers. LeGrier, who had a baseball bat, was in the hallway talking to his downstairs neighbor Bettie Jones.
