BALTIMORE — Lawyers for the family of a woman who was fatally shot by Baltimore County police in 2016 have rested their case in a lawsuit with testimony from the father of her child.
The Baltimore Sun reports that lawyers for the family of Korryn Gaines rested their case in a lawsuit Thursday with testimony from Corey Cunningham.
Cunningham said the son he had with Gaines, Kodi, has suffered physical and emotional damage since he was injured by a bullet when police fired on his mother after an hourslong standoff.
Police went to Gaines’ apartment to serve warrants to her and her fiance. He left with the couple’s infant child while Gaines armed herself, refused to leave and remained there with Kodi.
Eventually, an officer fired at Gaines multiple times.
The lawsuit contains claims including excessive force and wrongful death.
