Two of the dead were shot by police. During a news conference Monday, Chicago Police Superintendent Gary McCarthy said investigations were continuing but that officers who fired their weapons all appeared to be justified. The shootings included those in which two teenagers were fatally shot and another in which police shot at a man who tried to run them over with a car. McCarthy says Chicago is still on pace to end the year with fewer homicides than last year. But he says the number of shooting incidents is up slightly over last year.

Buchannan ended up in the hospital. His family filed excessive force complaints against Henry, but an internal investigation cleared him. Diamant was able to contact Jordan at the same number the texts came from. He agreed to meet Diamant in town, but cancelled at the last minute. Diamant actually tried for weeks to get Jordan's side of the story. When Diamant drove up to Jordons house outside Newnan, Diamant saw Jordan and his family outside in the yard but by the time he got out of the truck, the family scrambled into the house. Diamant eventually showed the texts to a stunned Grantville Mayor Jim Sells. "He may need an attorney," Sells said.
