A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a Shelbyville teenager who was shot and killed by a police officer.
Almost a year ago, police used a Taser on 18-year-old Trey Williams and then shot him to death at a home in Clifton Courts in Shelbyville.
Officers said they thought Williams broke into the house, but later found out Williams grandmother lived in the house.
Graphic video of the incident was recorded by the officers involved.
Early this year, a grand jury ruled the officers were justified to shoot the teen.
However, a federal lawsuit claimed officers Frank Willoughby and Suzanne Marcum were negligent and reckless and that the officers failed to follow the law by not getting a warrant and using excessive force.

We had a case around here where a teenager broke in and robbed and beat his own Grandparents. What was this kid really up to? The family doesn't seem interested in justice, just cash.
After watching the video I can see why they shot him.
I watched the video, too.
Police respond to a call of a man going down a street, smashing in car windows with a pipe.
The video starts with them inside a house where they believed the suspect to be. Behind a door they hear screaming, then the screamer starts chanting something repeatedly.
The police kick open the door, it is a bathroom. There is a large, shirtless man in there and they are yelling at him to not resist, shortly after Tasering him. He goes down, and they yell for him to put his hands behind his back, he puts a hand behind his back, but then tries to get up.
So more zaps with the Taser. But it is not stopping him and he charges the police. Video is somewhat unclear at that point, though widely spaced gunshots are heard.
If the Food Stamp President had a son .....
Warning, it someone approaches you named Trey, Treyvon, etc., just start firing because he has been sired and sent by Satan!
Now I would get really excited if the Families of the 4 Dead men killed in Benghazi would File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit against OBAMA and GANG.
When he overcame the taser and charged, he knocked one cop into a bedroom where they fought,, and the nut got that cop in a chokehold. The other cop shot him as he was in the process of choking the other cop out.
Lady cops are dangerous and use guns more often because it is the only way for them to stop a man. Women should not be cops, soldiers or firemen.
