Year Description Outcome
2021

The parents of Daverion Kinard filed a lawsuit against the Fontana Police Department, alleging that their son was fatally shot by a police officer during an attempt to arrest him. In August 2021, the City of Fontana agreed to pay the Kinard family $1 million to settle the case.

The lawsuit was filed following the fatal shooting of Daverion Kinard, who was shot by Officer Johnny Tuitavake after a foot pursuit in February 2021. After the Kinard family lawsuit was settled, another suit was filed in August 2021 against the same officer, alleging that he had used excessive force on Juan Gonzalez during an altercation in October 2020. Gonzalez’s lawsuit is currently in litigation.

Compensation
$1,000,000.00
