The Washington Post reported the family of a 52-year-old man is unable to file a Virginia wrongful death law suit against the police department or any other type of lawsuit.
The man was shot and killed by a police office last November for suspicious of having a weapon after he was stopped by the police for running a red light. The family wants to file a Virginia wrongful death suit for this incident.
