A California jury has awarded a Stockton family $2 million over the fatal shooting of their 21-year-old son by highway patrol officers in 2008. The man’s truck had spun out into a ditch after a short pursuit; as two officers approached, the man began to drive his car forward, prompting both officers to open fire, killing the man. Police say the car was coming toward them, but attorneys for the plaintiff said reenactment animations show the car was moving slowly toward the officers’ left.
