POLICE SHOOTING
Judge orders Martinsburg to give reports on fatal police shooting to plaintiffs

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, April 17, 2014 9:56 AM EDT
MARTINSBURG, W.Va.


The family of a Virginia man shot and killed by Martinsburg police officers has won a legal fight to obtain autopsy and state police reports from the incident.

The Journal reports that U.S. Magistrate Judge James E. Seibert ordered the city on Wednesday to turn the reports over to lawyer Sherman Lambert.

Lambert sued the city last year on behalf of the estate of 50-year-old Wayne Arnold Jones of Stephens City, Va. The estate is administered by Jones' two brothers.

The lawsuit alleges that officers used unreasonable and excessive force when they shot Jones after a scuffle on March 13, 2013.

The city said state police provided the investigative report with the understanding that it would be subject to a protective order if it were produced during discovery.
