ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) — The widow of a San Diego County man who was killed by Escondido police has sued the city for wrongful death.
The North County Times says the lawsuit was filed earlier this month and the city filed a response last week calling the suit without merit.
Police say 25-year-old Randy Wayne Mullins was shot to death in March 2010 when officers responded to a domestic violence report and Mullins answered his door with a shotgun.
Police say Mullins was shot during a struggle.
But Mullins' widow, Graciela, claims her husband was showing her how to load the shotgun and wasn't near the door when police came in and shot him.
The county district attorney's office found that the officer acted in self-defense.
