A dispute over who will receive the $750,000 settlement in the shooting death of Antonio Zambrano-Montes on a Pasco sidewalk in 2015
PASCO, Wash. (AP) — The family of a man shot to death after throwing rocks at police can’t agree on who should receive a $750,000 settlement.
So, the Tri-City Herald reports, a judge has rejected the offer and placed the civil case on hold for four months while the lawyers of Antonio Zambrano-Montes’ family work out an agreement.
Court documents say Zambrano-Montes died in February 2015 after officers shot at him 17 times. Zambrano-Montes, who was high on methamphetamine, was throwing rocks at police and passing cars.
An autopsy found he was shot five to seven times.
