Family of Aderrien Murry, 11-year-old shot by police, files federal lawsuit


Aderrien Murry, 11, called the police as his mother asked — but when officers arrived, one of them shot him in the chest. A new lawsuit says officials failed to train and supervise its officers.

The family of Aderrien Murry is seeking at least $5 million in damages. The Mississippi boy is recovering from his wounds, which include a collapsed lung, a fractured rib and a lacerated liver.
