(WBRZ News 2) Relatives of Alton Sterling claim Sterling's shooting death at the hands of Baton Rouge Police last year fit a pattern of racist behavior and excessive force that runs deep in the department, the Associated Press reported ahead of a news conference by attorneys Tuesday.
The AP reported the family's lawsuit claims Sterling’s shooting was the product of poor training and inadequate police procedures. It seeks unspecified damages.
