This looks toxic, by the way.

    Just a guess, but I’d think it’d be based on fault. If it’s a justified shooting, they’ll probably tack it into the suspect’s fines. Ideally, if the shooting isn’t justified, the govt would pay, but I wouldn’t count on it.

      I’m afraid your guess is wrong, at least in the US.

      The patient is on the hook for any services rendered. If the patient has insurance, that will pay according to the patient’s policy. The insurance company may then sue the city (subrogation) for causing the injuries, but that will go through lawyers and the courts.

        I’m disappointed, but not in the least surprised.
