Family of Korryn Gaines Files Wrongful-Death Lawsuit

Attorneys for the family of Korryn Gaines on Tuesday filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Baltimore County and the police officer who shot and killed her.

Surrounded by Gaines’ relatives and friends during a news conference at his downtown office, attorney J. Wyndal Gordon said they need answers on what exactly happened the day 23-year-old Gaines was killed at her Randallstown apartment. Her 5-year-old son, Kodi, was also shot and injured.

“The only way we’re going to learn them is by filing a lawsuit and conducting depositions,” Gordon said.
