Family of Police Shooting Victim Filing Wrongful Death Claim
The family of a man who was fatally shot by the police during a raid in a Bronx apartment building is filing a wrongful death suit. The claim is being filed against the NYPD.
Mario Sanabria was shot by the police last December. His family is now suing the city for $150 million. The police shot the man at a raid at the wrong house.
Police are saying that the shooting was justified. The family is looking for justice.
The 69-year-old was killed after a no-knock raid that included 9 officers going inside and looking for guns and drugs. But, they had raided the wrong apartment.
The search warrant was not for Mario and no one with the name on the warrant lived at that apartment.
Police allege that Sanabria was holding a large knife.
So far, the NYPD and the city have not commented on the pending lawsuit.
