Jury awards $2.2 million to family of man killed by LAPD officer


Richard Winton and Matt Hamilton

“A jury in a civil case Tuesday awarded $2.2 million to the family of a 26-year-old man who was shot and killed by a Los Angeles police officer — a shooting that Chief Charlie Beck had deemed justified and Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey declined to prosecute.

The panel deliberated six hours before deciding that the city should pay damages from the May 2013 shooting of Christian Eaddy, an African American man who had suffered a brain injury as a child.”
