Quintonio LeGrier was killed by officers responding to a Dec. 26 domestic disturbance who said he was “combative” toward police. A neighbor not involved in the disturbance, 55-year-old Bettie Jones, also was killed by police.

Autopsy reports prepared by the Cook County medical examiner’s office say LeGrier was shot in the chest, back, buttock and left arm and two suffered graze wounds. It was determined the Northern Illinois University student had marijuana in his system.

The medical examiner determined the bullet that struck Jones severed her heart, aorta and esophagus.

The county prosecutors has asked the FBI to investigate the shooting.
