Dylan Noble's parents awarded $2.8 million in wrongful death settlement

FRESNO, California - The parents of a 19-year-old who were shot and killed by Fresno Police officers in 2016 was awarded a $2.8 million settlement in their wrongful death case, the city announced Thursday.

Dylan Noble was killed by officers during a traffic stop on June 25, 2016. The case led to an outcry from the public calling foul since he was unarmed.

When the bodycam video was released, it showed that the initial shooting seemed justified, but Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer himself called the final shots inappropriate.

Darren Noble and Veronica Nelson, Dylan's parents, filed a civil rights action against the city and the two officers involved in the shooting.

The committee that reviewed the shooting identified issues that needed to be addressed, including training, equipment, and the modification of policy.
