Video: Cops Claim They Accidentally Killed Black Mother Of 5 In West Side Chicago

A police source said investigators were waiting for the autopsy to determine how many times LeGrier was shot. The source also said investigators were looking into whether responding officers knew they were dealing with someone with mental health issues and whether anyone on the scene was equipped with a Taser.

Relatives of Bettie Jones said they, too, had questions.

“Right now there's a whole lot of anger, a whole lot of tears,” said her brother Melvin Jones.

Jones lived in the first-floor apartment with her boyfriend, he said. She was the mother of four daughters and a son, her brother said.

Melvin Jones said he and about 15 other relatives were at the apartment Friday to celebrate Christmas with food and card games. “She had an excellent Christmas. Family was over,” Melvin Jones said. “And then to wake up to this.”

Robin Andrews, Bettie Jones' youngest brother, said Jones had been battling ovarian cancer for several years and had recently taken time off from her job at a bakery to recuperate.

“She was already sick,” he said through tears. “She was already fighting for her life.”
