LA Council Approves a $24 Million Settlement for the Family of Man Who Was Fatally Shot by LAPD in 2017

The Los Angeles City Council approved a settlement Tuesday of more than $24 million with the mother of a man who was fatally shot by two police officers at a Canoga Park home in 2017.

Council members voted 11-0 to approve a total of $24,450,750 to the family of Jesse Murillo. Council members Imelda Padilla, Nithya Raman, Hugo Soto-Martinez and Monica Rodriguez were absent during the vote.
