San Antonio readers may have heard about a shooting that took place in January 2012. In the case, an 18-year-old man was killed after he allegedly brandished a knife at two police officers in Medford. Now, his family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit for $2 million against the city, according to a Dec. 4 report, because they believe the officers were not trained for the situation properly.
The report states that the family members called the police to their home in Jan. 2012 because a fight had broken out when they were in the process of cooking dinner. Two officers arrived to the scene, according to the news, and were standing near the entrance to the home when the 18-year-old male came out of the house. He was allegedly brandishing a butcher's knife and was wearing a protective vest. Both officers were armed, one with a stun gun and one with a regular gun. Both allegedly shot at the man at the same time.
