18 y/o Aaron Harrison was standing on a street corner with others when a self-described wolf pack of police cars drove by. One police vehicle drove straight at Aaron and jumped the curb. Aaron ran and police chased him on foot. Aaron ran through alleys and yards zigzagging and taunting the pursuing officer. As Aaron crossed the alley in front of one of the officers and then entered another yard, that officer pulled out a gun and shot Aaron in the back. A gun was recovered at the scene. The officers maintained that Aaron had a gun while 5 civilian witnesses testified that there was no gun. Forensics showed no fingerprints from Aaron and DNA from a drop of Aaron’s blood on the tip of the gun. Mr. Montgomery argued that based on the evidence the gun was planted and that the police account was fabricated. The jury agreed and awarded $8.5m.
