Korryn Gaines Family Announces Lawsuit Against Baltimore County Police
Earlier today, the family and legal team representing Korryn Gaines, the 23-year-old mother killed by Baltimore County Police in August of this year, gathered to announce the filing of a lawsuit against the police department before the completion of an investigation of the incident by state authorities.
"Now many will ask why are we filing this lawsuit when the government hasnÂ’'t finished its investigation, when the stateÂ’s attorneyÂ’s office hasn'Â’t finished their investigation, and when the police havenÂ’t finished their investigation," said attorney J Wyndal Gordon."We respond by saying that if we trusted the government and the police department to conduct a proper investigation, then we wouldÂ’ve waited. However, we donÂ’t leave the results of an investigation in a matter important as this, solely within the hands of the police department."
