Family Sues County Over Son’s Death

By City News Service

(CNS) – Family members of a man shot to death by sheriff’s deputies last summer in East Los Angeles have filed two lawsuits against the county and Sheriff Lee Baca, alleging civil rights violations and wrongful death.

The complaints were filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court in connection with the Aug. 20 shooting of 19-year-old Pablo Garcia in the 1400 block of Downey Road.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore declined comment on the allegations, but said the whole story about the shooting has not yet been told and that the department looks forward to doing so.
