Family of Man Fatally Shot by FBI in New Orleans Files Civil Rights Lawsuit

The FBI used excessive force when fatally shooting a 37-year-old man during a drug sting at a New Orleans motel, a civil rights lawsuit filed Thursday by the man’s family alleges.

The Times-Picayune reports that the family of Allen Desdunes also claims that FBI agents and other law enforcement tried to cover up the details of the July 30 shooting.

In April, the Justice Department concluded its investigation of the shooting and said charges weren’t warranted. The Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office also declined to pursue criminal charges.

Family members said Desdunes was unarmed when he came under attack during a drug sting.

On the surface, it looks pretty suspicious.

It’s “definitely bizarre and defies logic at first glance,” Jonesboro, Ark.  Police Chief Michale Yates said, reports Huffington Post.

Chavis Carter, 21, was shot in the head while handcuffed in the rear of a police car in Arkansas.

Police said Carter committed suicide with a gun police failed to find when they searched him.

Carter’s family members, however, believe police killed Carter and are trying to cover it up, according to the Huffington Post.

The FBI is investigating.
