HARRISBURG (PENSILVANIA), Oct. 30 (Reuters / EP) –
The parents of Antwon Rose II, a black teenager killed in 2018 by a police officer in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will receive compensation of about $ 2 million, according to a court document.
The case, resolved on Tuesday, states that Rose's parents, Michelle Kenney and Antwon Rose, will receive net compensation of $ 1,173,429.19 after subtracting attorneys' fees from 40 percent and other expenses, according to documents filed in the Division of the Orphan Court of the Allegheny County Court of Common Grounds.
Rose, 17, died on June 19, 2018, after receiving three shots from agent Michael Rosfeld, in the city that is about 16 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
The lawsuit accused Rosfeld of behaving in a threatening and hostile way towards Rose and two other men who were with him in a vehicle, which made them fear for their lives.
Rosfeld, 31, was acquitted of murder charges by a jury in Allegheny County last March.
Rose's parents hired an accounting firm to determine if Pittsburgh East had assets beyond their insurance policies that could be added to the damage payment. In the end, it was determined that $ 2 million would be the maximum amount available, according to court documents.
