Tensions remain high in Chicago after police shot and killed two people early Saturday morning, with the force already faces heightened scrutiny overs its practices.

Janet Cooksey says her 19-year-old son, Quintonio LeGrier, was a college honors student studying engineering who recently had been dealing with some mental health issues.

Family members reportedly called police to their home Saturday because the teen was threatening his father with a baseball bat. Detectives described LeGrier as being "combative" before he was shot.

"I used to watch the news daily and I would grieve for other mothers, other family members, and now today I'm grieving myself," said Janet Cooksey, LeGrier's mother. "When do it come to an end?"

Fifty-five-year-old Bettie Jones, a mother of five, lived in the same building. She was reportedly waiting for police to respond, then got shot along with LeGrier.

Police admitted she was quote "accidentally struck and tragically killed."

"Right now is a time for compassion towards the suffering of families that are experiencing injustices throughout our city," Jahmal Cole, a Jones relative, said Sunday at a press conference.
