#SanDiegoPD executes unarmed parolee, jury says no problem

A federal jury on Tuesday sided with a San Diego police officer in the 2013 shooting death of an unarmed parolee during a SWAT operation.

The verdict in the wrongful death lawsuit against Officer Kristopher Walb came after about two days of deliberation.

Walb was sued for excessive force, battery, negligence and wrongful death by the family of Chula Vista gang member Angel Lopez, 27, who was fatally shot in the back during a confrontation with police in a dimly lit hallway in a College Area apartment complex.
