That’s when Tiller unloaded on the teen at near point-blank range.

The officer later said he shot Hammond because he felt threatened.

Morton, who was the target of the police investigation, was only charged with simple possession of marijuana.

Hammond’s family has since filed a federal lawsuit disputing the officer’s claim that he was acting in self-defense, stating that because Hammond was shot in the side and back, he wasn’t an immediate threat to the officer.
