Lawsuit by Pedestrian Shot During NYPD’s Botched Apprehension of Unarmed Man

Below is the complaint filed on April 15, 2014 against the City of New York and several “John Doe” police officers by Theodora Ray, who is one of the bystanders shot by the NYPD during the botched September 14, 2013 attempt to apprehend an (unarmed) Glenn Broadnax. (I previously wrote about a similar suit, arising from a bystander being shot during the August 2012 shooting outside the Empire State Building, here.)

Plaintiff alleges, among other things, that by using deadly force (discharging their weapons) under the circumstances, the officers acted negligently, carelessly, and recklessly, and in violation of NYPD Department Procedures relating to the use of deadly force and discharging of police weapons.
