Was it a police cover-up or was a police officer justified in killing a man? A Utah family has filed a $1 million lawsuit against the agencies involved to get the truth. They believe the departments intentionally ignored key evidence after a South Jordan officer shot and killed one of their family members.
Forty-one-year old Wade Pennington was killed in May of 2009 after being involved in a chase with South Jordan police officers. Based on dashcam videos of the chase and shooting, the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office and the West Jordan police department, who investigated the shooting, cleared the South Jordan officer who fired his gun.
But the family says, look and listen to the videos, and see if what the investigation says happened matches what's on tape.
On the night Wade Pennington died, you don't actually see him being shot, but you can hear it--two shots, fire
