Baltimore’s Board of Estimates is poised to approve a $6 million settlement with the family of a man killed during a police chase by Gun Trace Task Force members, an amount that, if approved, would become one of the most substantial settlements related to the rogue police force to date. The lawsuit, filed by Shirley Johnson, stems from a crash more than a decade ago that claimed the life of her father Elbert Davis Sr. Davis and his partner Phosa Cain were driving in the Grove Park neighborhood of West Baltimore on April 28, 2010 when their car was hit by two men fleeing city police.
A police chase led to the death of a Baltimore man. Now the city is poised to pay a $6 million settlement to his family.
