The City of Cedar Rapids settled an $8 million lawsuit in the wrongful shooting of Jerime Mitchell.
Sergeant Lucas Jones was fired in June 2020 for “violating department policy,” after shooting and paralyzing Jerime Mitchell.

The civil suit alleged Jones engaged in deceptive police practices and misconduct, such as violating police policies and procedures and turning off his recording equipment to hide his violations of police department policies.
