Chicago police responding to a domestic disturbance call shot and killed two people early Saturday, including one woman who police say was shot by accident.
"They were confronted by a combative individual, resulting in an officer firing shots, fatally wounding two individuals," Eugene Roy, Chicago Police Department Bureau of Detectives chief, told reporters.
The father of 19-year-old Quintonio LeGrier says he called police after his son became agitated and started threatening him with a baseball bat. LeGrier was an engineering student at Northern Illinois University and was home for Christmas break. His family said he was struggling with mental issues.
