We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $900,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
In March 2022, the City of Akron reached a $900,000 settlement with brothers Jamon Pruiett and Latrent Redrick, who were shot by a police officer, John Turnure.
In October 2017, an alleged altercation broke out outside of ZAR Nightclub. Officers claim that Redrick was arguing with a group of men, eventually pointing a loaded firearm at them which caused alarm. Turnure then approached Redrick and shot him several times. Pruiett then allegedly grabbed the gun and shot at Turnure, resulting in Turnure shooting Pruiett several times. However, Priuett claims that he and his brother were getting something to eat when someone picked a fight with them, resulting in Redrick’s self-defense. Pruiett was acquitted for a felonious charge of assault and Redrick obtained a misdemeanor for inducing panic. Turnure was cleared of charges, and the brothers reached a settlement.
