Officers responded to a domestic call involving an intoxicated person with a gun. When police arrived, Bethea pointed a loaded weapon at officers and refused to drop it when told to do so.
The officers fired, killing Bethea. Autopsy results show Bethea was shot multiple times in the stomach, pelvis and right forearm. Toxicology results show Bethea had a blood alcohol content of 0.469.
The Illinois State Police determined the use of force in the officer-involved shooting was justified. The McLean County State's Attorney is not pursuing charges against any of the officers involved.
