Judge Awards $3M to Family of Teen Slain by DEA Agent

August 22, 2013  | 

A federal judge has awarded $3 million to the family of an 18-year-old Southern California teenager who was shot and killed by a plainclothes federal agent.

The ruling stems from the fatal shooting of Zachary Champommier by a Drug Enforcement Administration special agent in a Studio City parking lot in 2010.

Champommier had headed to the parking lot to meet a friend, who was being detained by task force officers who suspected him of breaking into vehicles. Champommier struck a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy while driving his mother's vehicle. A DEA agent then fatally shot the teen.

U.S. District Judge Michael Fitzgerald said shooting at Champommier would not have helped the predicament of the DEA agents, reports the Los Angeles Times.
