WRONGFUL DEATH LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST FAYETTEVILLE POLICE
May 6, 2015
A family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against police in Fayetteville, North Carolina, for a man shot and killed by officers.
The lawsuit, filed by the family of 21-year-old Lawrence Graham, claims that officers used excessive and unnecessary force by shooting Graham in the back, resulting in gun shot-related blood clots that he died from two months later.
Lawyer for officer Denton Little, Billy West, said Little had a “legal and measured response to the situation” and acted in self-defense.
