PBSO awards family $325K in deadly 2012 shooting of Victor Arango

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office has agreed to pay more than $300,000 for a deadly deputy-involved shooting that occurred almost four years ago.

A deputy shot Victor Arango outside a bar  on June 7, 2012 in Boynton Beach.


PBSO will pay $325,000 to his family and $25,000 will also go to a college fund for his daughter.

The deputy involved, Michael Suszczynski, says he shot out of fear that Arango would pull a gun during a bar fight.

Suszczynski was cleared in the case  by the state attorney's office.
