In front of the suburban Chicago bar where her son Jemel Roberson, an on-duty security guard, was shot and killed by the police in November, Beatrice Roberson explained on Saturday why she was making her first public statements.
“I was just too messed up. I couldn’t talk about it without crying,” Ms. Roberson said at a news conference amid snow flurries. “The other day, I made up my mind. I said I’m going to fight for my son.”
Ms. Roberson’s declaration came a day after the name of the officer who shot her son was revealed as part of a wrongful-death lawsuit she filed against the officer, Ian Covey of the Midlothian Police Department, and the village of Midlothian.
Hours after the amended complaint was filed on Friday, Chief Daniel Delaney confirmed the officer’s name.
Officer Covey, who was placed on administrative leave, is white and Mr. Roberson was black.
“If a young man shot a police officer, that young man’s picture would be on the TV tonight,” Gregory Kulis, Ms. Roberson’s lawyer, said at the news conference. “But for two months we have been looking for the name of the officer that killed Jemel Roberson.”
Mr. Roberson, 26, was killed early on the morning of Nov. 11 as he detained a man who was believed to be involved in a shooting outside the bar in Robbins, Ill.
Witnesses said they warned officers that Mr. Roberson was a security guard and that he was wearing clothes marked “Security.” Mr. Roberson, who was licensed to carry a firearm, was holding the man at gunpoint.
“I hear some people say he was shot,” Ms. Roberson said. “My son was not shot. My son was murdered.”
An initial report by Illinois State Police contradicted some witness accounts.
The report, which Mr. Kulis has criticized, says Roberson was given “multiple verbal commands” to drop his weapon and get on the ground before he was shot by Officer Covey. It also says Mr. Roberson was wearing “plain black clothing with no markings” that would identify him as a security guard, according to witnesses. Mr. Kulis told NPR that Mr. Roberson was wearing a hat with the word “security” on it.
Midlothian and Illinois state police, who are both investigating the shooting, had declined to name Officer Covey, even as Mr. Kulis subpoenaed records of the shooting and Mr. Roberson’s family pressed for the officer to be identified.
Nick Valadez, a lawyer for Midlothian, told The Chicago Tribune that growing pressure led to the decision to release the officer’s name.
“Given that the vitriol has died down slightly and given that the name was being batted around, speculated to, as well as the plaintiff pursuing it and amending the complaint, it just seemed to be time,” Mr. Valadez said.
Neither Midlothian nor Illinois state police responded to requests for comment on Saturday. Neither Officer Covey nor a union representing him could be reached for comment.
“I want justice for my son. I want this officer put away. I want him to lose his job,” Ms. Roberson said as some supporters held T-shirts with the words “Security Guard. Don’t Shoot” and a picture of Mr. Roberson’s face.
Mr. Roberson had an infant son, and his girlfriend was pregnant with their second child. Ms. Roberson said he was a musician who loved playing the organ at church. She did not like that he worked as a security guard or that he wanted to become a police officer.
Two months before his death, Ms. Roberson said, her son stopped by her office to print out an application for the Chicago Police Department.
“He loved people and he loved saving lives,” Ms. Roberson said. “He always had that protective feeling, that he needs to protect somebody.”
The amended lawsuit came on the same day that Jason Van Dyke, a former Chicago police officer, was sentenced to nearly seven years in prison for murdering Laquan McDonald, a black teenager. Some have criticized the sentence, calling it too short.
Ms. Roberson agreed but said it would not deter her from pushing for Mr. Covey to face criminal charges.
“I’m not going to give up,” Ms. Roberson said, before breaking into a chant of “justice for Jemel.”B:
