L.A. County Votes to Settle Ryan Twyman DIS Shooting for $3.9 Million: 24-year-old Ryan Tyman was shot by L.A. County sheriff’s deputies, who said he used his car as a weapon against them June 6, in Compton. On November 12 the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to approve a 3.9 million settlement of a federal lawsuit brought by the family of Ryan Twyman. Former Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas made a statement. He said, “This is a sobering reminder of the families and community’s need for justice, healing and compassion. Although a $3.9 million settlement is unusually large, it is no substitute for justice.” He continued, “Justice indeed requires an investigation with legally mandated oversight by the Office of Inspector General to ensure that careless tragedies like this one are repeated.” According to the plaintiffs’ court papers, the deputies violently confronted Twyman even though he and Leffall were unarmed and not a threat to them.
