A Chicago police officer shot and killed 19-year-old black man Quintonio Legrier, and 55-year-old black woman Bettie Jones this morning, while responding to a domestic disturbance call, officials said.

As officers were called to the scene this morning at 4:25AM they were informed Legrier was seen brandishing a baseball bat, and in an evolving confrontation with his father. The officers described the young Legrier as a "combative subject."

Legrier's mother told the press his son was dealing with mental issues and was prone to loud, but never violent behavior.

"My son has seven bullet wounds in him," Cooksey told WLS-TV. "That's too much." Police disclosed the shooting is under current investigation, and has been referred to Chicago's main police oversight agency.

Time-Lapse Thing of the Day: Craig Shimala woke up every day in the month of June to capture the sun rising over downtown Chicago.

Each shot you see in the video is in sequential order. 9 of the 30 days Mother Nature did not cooperate and provided either rain or heavy overcast skies. As a result, those days were left out since the captured footage wasn't much to look at.
