Eyewitness says Compton teenager killed by deputy held a cellphone, not a gun

Avery Cody's family is suing Los Angeles County in the 16-year-old's shooting death. The Sheriff's Department's official account is that the boy brandished a gun, but court testimony has contradicted that.

A Compton teenager fatally shot in the back by a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy in 2009 was not holding a gun, according to the testimony of one eyewitness who sharply contradicted the sheriff's official account of the shooting.
