Under the settlement approved on Thursday by the Chandler City Council, Cano's mother, Renee Clum, will receive $1 million; Cano's father, Anthony Cano Sr., will receive $125,000.
The city admits no fault under the settlement, and the officer involved, Chase Bebak-Miller, continues to serve pending an internal investigation from the Maricopa County Attorney’s office, according to Chandler spokesperson Matthew Burdick.
Bebak-Miller shot Cano within seconds of commanding him to get on the ground. Cano laid facedown, incapacitated after the shot when Babak-Miller decided to shoot again. The shots were one-to-two seconds apart.
The city of Chandler released edited bodycam footage of the shooting in January, then released the extended body cam footage in March under pressure from the public.
In the extended bodycam footage, the Babak-Miller can be heard telling the boy to put his hands behind his back, to which Cano replied, “I'm sorry, sir. I can't." Cano also told him that he had tried to throw away the handgun, a stolen, loaded 9mm, to which the officer replied, "that was stupid."
As Cano was being handcuffed, he said “I don't want to die.”
The words sent shockwaves through Chandler, which spurred protests at Chandler City Hall throughout the ensuing weeks.
In March, five people were arrested in Chandler during a Cano protest (see video of the arrests below.)
For friends and family, the focus shifts to Bebak-Miller’s investigation.
“The fight will continue,” said Phil Martinez, a Phoenix-area activist who is close to the family.
