Dominic Felder shot and killed by Minneapolis Police in 2006

A huge jury award against the city of Minneapolis. A Hennepin County Jury has awarded more than 1.8 million dollars to the family of a man who was shot and killed by Minneapolis police four years ago.

Police say Dominic Felder fought with two police officers who responded to a 9-1-1 domestic abuse call and was shot and killed while trying to take a gun from one officer. But an attorney for Felder’s family says the police version of what happened that night don’t add up. The jury agreed and awarded 1 million dollars in compensatory damages and 800-thousand dollars in punitive damages.
