A California jury has awarded $9 million to the family of Sinuon Pream, 37, who was fatally shot by Long Beach police officers on Jan. 15, 2017, after she refused repeated orders to drop a knife. The jury reached the verdict in federal court in Long Beach, Calif., on Friday, March 22, 2019. Pream's family says she suffered from mental illness and officers should have done more to deescalate the situation.
