L.A. County to pay $3.75 million to family of teen killed by sheriff’s deputy
Los Angeles County taxpayers will pay $3.75 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the family of a 16-year-old boy who was shot and killed by a Sheriff’s Department deputy in February 2018, county leaders decided Tuesday. The killing of Anthony Weber sparked weeks of protests in South Los Angeles, fueled in part by frustration over deputies’ claims that the boy was carrying a gun. Family members also said the department failed to communicate with them about details of the shooting. No firearm was found, the Sheriff’s Department said, reasoning that it could have gone missing in the crowd that formed after the shooting.
Nadeja Jermainequa Pressley, 23, was accidentally shot early Sunday about 1:15 a.m. at her home on Young Street, Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans said.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Pressley's father believed an intruder was trying to gain entry through a door, Lt. Jimmy Bolt said.
Pressley was pronounced dead at the scene.
Lt. Ryan Flood said Monday that investigators initially thought that the father shot through the door, but Pressley actually shot once the door was opened by his daughter.
She was bringing her father food when she was shot, Flood said.
The two had a conversation earlier that day about her bringing him food to his home, but she didn't show up until after 1 a.m., according to Flood.
Flood said investigators are unsure if the woman lived at the home, but he said she did have a key to the home.
