The city of San Bernardino announced Friday, March 22, it has paid $4 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a man who allegedly was armed with a gun when he was fatally shot by police as he was running away from them outside an illegal casino.

The family of Rob Marquise Adams filed a lawsuit against the city and police Officers Michael Yeun and Imran Ahmed in December 2022, initially alleging Adams was shot seven times without justification. Most of those shots were in the back, according to the lawsuit.

Brad Gage, who along with nationally known civil rights attorney Ben Crump is representing Adams’ family, said Friday that Adams, 23, was actually shot six times, and one of the shots was a “through and through,” meaning one of bullets entered and exited Adams, leaving two wounds.
