KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Attorneys for three men involved in a deadly incident with Osceola County deputies last year have filed a lawsuit against Target, where the shooting took place.

Jayden Baez, 20, was killed and two others were hurt in the April 2022 shooting, which stemmed from the theft of Pokémon cards and a pizza from the Target on West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway and the ramming of a sheriff’s cruiser, according to investigators.

The lawsuit claims Target is partially responsible because the company allowed deputies to use the parking lot for training, which was taking place at the time of the shooting.

Attorneys say that since the public was not informed of the training, their clients ended up being “test subjects” for the exercise.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for medical bills, mental anguish and more.

Target has not commented on the suit (read below).
