CA Highway Patrol to Pay $7M Settlement Over Death of Sacramento Man

Six years after a California Highway Patrol officer shot a Sacramento man to death on a Northern California freeway overpass, the CHP has agreed to pay $7 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit over the incident.

The settlement over the June 4, 2016, shooting death of Daniel Shaham, which comes two months before the case was scheduled to go to trial in Sacramento, still must be finalized in court filings.

But the agreement allows the CHP to avoid a trial that was expected to focus on a graphic video of the shooting and the actions of then-CHP Officer Paul Shadwell, who shot Shaham four times and also was involved in two other “highly questionable shootings,” according to court documents.
