A Chicago cop is in the freezer after he shoots and kill a teen and his grandmother.
The Huffington Post and AP report that Quintonio Legrier, 19 was acting erratically at his home in the neighborhood of Garfield Heights. The teen was acting pretty damn crazy. He was swinging a metal bat around.
The law arrives on the scene. The family said that the cop failed to calm him down. So as the teen swings the bat, the cop puts seven in him. He immediately drops.
Somehow the cop's slugs ricocheted into the neighbor's home. It went into the neck of a woman who lived next door. The mother Bettie Jones, 56 opened to the door after she heard massive shots. She dropped after the slug got her in the neck.
Now the Illinois State patrol and Chicago police are investigating the incident.
