Amarillo named in wrongful death lawsuit

Amarillo, Texas - The City of Amarillo is now being sued by the family of the man killed in the Polk Street officer involved shooting last year.

24-year-old Claudio Trujillo was killed when officers shot at his SUV more than 40 times, something Amarillo Police say was an act of self defense because he was driving straight at them and would not stop.

The case will go to trial on February 27th.
