The California State University, Los Angeles student had told his mother that he was going to Target to apply for a job. The police, heavily concentrated in the area because of an earlier, but unrelated, car-to-car shooting earlier in the day, responded to a call from the store that Garcia was acting strangely.

After a scuffle with officers, Garcia grabbed an officer’s baton and tried to use it as a weapon. Officers tried to use a Taser on Garcia, but the device malfunctioned.

They then fired at Garcia, striking him 15 times. He died at the scene.

The West Covina City Council approved the $1.5 million settlement the first week of September. The case remains open until the family accepts the offer. If it is not accepted within 30 days, the criminal proceedings will continue.
