BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The jury has been seated in the trial for a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of a local woman who was fatally shot in a standoff with police.
It will be an all-female jury in the Korryn Gaines civil trial, as nine women were selected as jurors.
Gaines was killed during an hourslong standoff in 2016 at her Randallstown apartment after pointing a shotgun at officers trying to serve an arrest warrant stemming from a traffic stop that included disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Attorneys for Gaines’ family claim officers used excessive force when they fatally shot her and injured her 5-year-old son. They also say police violated her rights by illegally entering her apartment.
