OAKLAND, Calif. — The city of Oakland is poised to pay $650,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of an unarmed drunken-driving suspect shot to death by a police officer who has since been fired.
Officer Hector Jimenez shot Mack "Jody" Woodfox III, 27, three times in the back July 25, 2008, as Woodfox ran from police at Fruitvale Avenue and East 17th Street in the Fruitvale district, authorities said.
