Family files $20 million claim against Los Angeles in police shooting

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/01/2015 - 04:22
By Dana Feldman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Family members of a homeless man from Cameroon who was fatally shot by police during a videotaped encounter in the Skid Row section of Los Angeles has filed a $20 million wrongful death claim against the city, their attorneys said on Thursday. The March 1 shooting of 43-year-old Charly Keunang, who police say grabbed for an officer's holstered gun as officers tried to arrest him as a robbery suspect, sparked protests in Los Angeles and came as law enforcement agencies face scrutiny over the use of lethal force. Keunang's mother, Heleine Tchayou, wept as she spoke in French through a translator at a news conference on Thursday in front of Los Angeles police headquarters. "This was a cop-created killing in which six heavily-armed, highly-trained law enforcement officers initiated a conflict with an unarmed homeless man and then less than three minutes later, shot him six times in the chest, killing him as they held him down on the sidewalk," the family's claim said.
