Attorneys representing the family of Aaron Campbell, a emotionally disturbed man who was shot dead by police this January, have filed a wrongful death suit against the city of Portland and four of the officers involved in his death.
The suit, filed by Tom Steenson, who also represents James Chasse's family, seeks unspecified economic damages and accuses the Portland Police Bureau of condoning the illegal use of unreasonable force by officers and failing to take steps to discipline officers when they use deadly force.
Here's a copy of the complaint. And here's a statement from Campbell's family. Stay tuned for updates.
