BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — A lawsuit will be filed on behalf of the family of a teen who died after an attempted traffic stop by police in Boynton Beach last month.

Attorneys with Ben Crump's law firm will hold a virtual news conference Thursday to announce the team's intent to file the lawsuit on behalf of the teen's family.

Stanley Davis III, 13, was killed Dec. 26 in the 800 block of North Federal Highway after his dirt bike crashed as police attempted to pull him over.

Preliminary reports state Davis was seen driving recklessly on a dirt bike on Boynton Beach Boulevard when officers tried to make a traffic stop.

It's unclear what led Davis to lose control of his bike.

After his death, supporters have gathered to express their displeasure with the city and the police department.

The investigation in this case is ongoing. The officer involved remains on administrative leave.
