Widow of Man Shot by Pasco Police Withdraws Wrongful Death Claim
The widow of Antonio Zambrano-Montes, who was fatally shot by the Pasco police on February 10, is withdrawing the wrongful death claim filed against the city on February 13.
The $25 million claim alleged that the officers were not justified at fatally shooting Antonio as he posed no danger to them.
The victim’s widow Teresa de Jesus Meraz-Ruiz will now be represented by attorney Charles Herrmann. According to Herrmann, the claim filed earlier was “was premature, ill-considered, and done without Teresa’s knowledge or express consent.” He further said that his firm is now independently investigating the case and will file a new claim after considering all aspects.
