CHICAGO -- Some Chicago aldermen are urging the city to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of a woman shot and killed by Chicago police.
Bettie Jones and Quintonio LeGrier were shot to death in late December, as police responded to a call at a West Side apartment.
The officer was firing at LeGrier, but Jones was shot in the chest as she was standing behind a door she had opened for police.
Jones' daughter filed a wrongful death lawsuit against police.
Members of the City Council Finance Committee voiced support Monday for a non-binding resolution that would ask the city to settle with the Jones family.
Meanwhile, an attorney for Quintonio LeGrier's family says a lawsuit against LeGrier's estate is a "new low."
Officer Robert Rialmo's civil suit claims Quintonio LeGrier forced the shooting, after he repeatedly swung a baseball bat at him.
Rialmo says the shooting caused him "extreme emotional trauma."
The officer is seeking $10,000,000 in damages.
He's being represented by Drew Peterson's former attorney, Joel Brodsky.
LeGrier's family has also filed a wrongful-death suit.
