The father of Quintonio LeGrier, the teenager fatally shot by Chicago police over the weekend, has taken legal action against the city of Chicago, CNN reports.
On Monday, Antonio LeGrier filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the officer shot his son without justification, used excessive force and failed to provide medical care as he lay bleeding on the floor.
Antonio LeGrier also sued on grounds of false arrest. He is seeking damages exceeding $100,000.
City officials did not immediately reply to CNN’s request for comment on the lawsuit.
