2 Wrongful Death Lawsuits Target MPD

$3 million in wrongful death lawsuits filed in killings involving officers
My colleague Nick Kenney knew these lawsuits were going to be filed Wednesday afternoon.  They came in just before the 5:00 news.  Nick was able to detail what they allege.  I picked up the story after turning a separate piece for an early newscast.  I was actually on the scene of one of these police-involved shootings.  Both came soon after an MPD officer was shot and killed.  The suits claim the "heightened alert" officers were on made them trigger happy.
