Maryland Reaches $20M Settlement For Shooting Handcuffed Man

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Attorneys for Prince George’s County, Md., announced Monday that a settlement had been reached with the family of 43-year-old William Green, a Black man who was fatally shot while handcuffed in a police cruiser.

Monday’s announcement stems from Green’s death in late January, after which a Prince George’s County police officer, Cpl. Michael A. Owen Jr., was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. Owen, who is also Black, was fired from the department the day after the shooting.

The $20 million settlement was announced by Angela Alsobrooks (D), the county executive for Prince George’s County, at a press conference Monday morning.

“I am deeply sorry for your loss,” Alsobrooks told Green’s mother at Monday’s news conference.
