Police Shoot and Kill Pregnant 16 Year Old, Now Face Lawsuit


John Burris, attorney for the family, stated that, “We have real concerns about the police officers’ conduct, which was extremely reckless, negligent, and done with disregard for human lives. Police, without any regard for the occupants in the car, shot into a moving car, contrary to good police practices, resulting in the death of Elena, who was an innocent person.”

Mondragon’s mother, Michelle Mondragon, said, “It hurts to accept that no one has owned it.” She wasn’t told about her daughter’s death until the following day despite the incident.
