CASE №00085
NAME: Bryan Peña Valencia
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Bryan Peña Valencia, 28, was shot and killed during an altercation with Unified Police in Taylorsville, Salt Lake County.

Peña Valencia was shot by a police officer on March 21, 2020 after police responded to a 911 call about gunshots. Investigators said his black Cadillac matched the description of a car that left the scene of a recent shooting. According to police, Peña Valencia fled from them in a car then crashed the car. A chase on foot began, which involved jumping a fence.

Officers reportedly used a taser on Peña Valencia twice before eventually firing. One of the officers said Peña Valencia disobeyed his orders, and his hands were moving by his waist, causing him to fear for his life and use deadly force. He shot Peña Valencia six times.

In May 2021 Peña Valencia’s family and their attorney have sued the Unified Police Department and the two officers involved for no less than $2 million. The family accuses the Police Department of violating civil rights and use of excessive force.
