ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A federal jury is deciding who is responsible for shooting a 2-year-old boy at the Homer airport in 2006.
The boy, Jason Anderson Jr., was shot in the head and was left brain-damaged.
There is disagreement on whether the shot was fired by police or the boy's father, a fugitive originally from Duluth, Minn., who died in the encounter.
The Anchorage Daily News says the boy's mother has sued the city of Homer and its police department for $23 million.
Cherry Dietzmann settled out of court with the U.S. Marshals Service for almost $3.5 million in 2011.
The boy was shot when marshals and Homer police officers tried to arrest Jason K. Anderson, a violent drug dealer who was hiding in Alaska, and fired into his vehicle.
