Cleveland settles police-shooting lawsuit filed by son of City Hall officials

“Cleveland police stopped Randell Scott Jr. shortly after midnight on Sept.15, 2012, as he walked with an open beer to his house on Parmelee Avenue on the city’s East Side, according to the suit. Police ordered Scott to put down the beer and “come here.” As Scott complied with the order, he announced that he had a firearm in his waistband and a permit to carry it. Then, one of the police officers, Mark Worsencroft, drew his gun and ordered Scott to raise his hands and put them behind his back, the suit says. Scott was slowly lowering his hands to comply with the order when Worsencroft shot him in the stomach, the suit says.”
