Oregon – The family of a 20-year-old man who was killed after being shot by U.S. Marshals in a supermarket parking lot has filed a lawsuit against the federal government. As reported by the Mail Tribune, Karly Greico, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit is seeking $1.5 million damages for “pain, anguish, mental distress, depression, lost income and loss of familial companionship” as stated in the complaint.

Greico is reportedly the younger sister of James “Jimmy” Georgeson, who was shot in the head and chest during the incident in 2012, after allegedly attempting to hit U.S. Marshals with his vehicle to evade arrest. The complaint alleges that marshals shot 20 times into the vehicle.

The lawsuit was filed by plaintiffs on behalf of Georgeson’s estate and Kaiden Haight, who was a passenger in the vehicle at the time. Haight is seeking $1.2 million in damages in the suit.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Medford.
