Baltimore Approves $6M to Settle Suit Stemming from GTTF Car Chase

The city spending board today approved a $6 million settlement to the family of a man killed during a police chase by the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF), bringing to $22.2 million the financial toll of lawsuits generated by the activities of the corrupt police gang.

The Board of Estimates voted unanimously to make the payment, settling a lawsuit filed by Shirley Johnson stemming from an April 2010 crash that resulted in the death of her father, Elbert Davis Sr.

The car driven by Davis and his partner, Phosa Cain, was hit by two men fleeing the BPD officers.
