PORTLAND -- A jury has awarded $2.5 million to the mother of a teen who was killed by police in 2006.
"I'm hoping that no one else has to go through what we went through," said Hope Glenn.
Lukus Glenn was 18 when he was shot by Washington county deputies on September 16, 2006.
His mother had called for help when Glenn was threatening her and others. But she says deputies didn't give him time to calm down before pulling the trigger.
Deputies said Glenn was waiving a knife when they shot him, and they were cleared of criminal wrongdoing by the district attorney in 2006.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office responded to the decision, saying the process has been difficult for the deputies and their families.
It's unclear if the county will appeal.
