The father of a 19-year-old shot and killed by a Dallas police officer last summer has sued the officers — and the city of Dallas — in federal court.
Gerardo Pinedo Sr. says the officers are responsible for the wrongful death of his son Gerardo Pinedo Jr., who Sr. Cpl. Mark Meltabarger and Officer Jamal Robinson initially believed had broken into a house on Conner Drive, off Buckner Boulevard, in Pleasant Grove. That house turned out to be Pinedo’s childhood home, and the suit claims that the 19-year-old was “lawfully within [the] home” during the moments leading to the fatal shooting.
