Michigan City sued by family of Patrick LyoyaThe family of an African refugee who was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has filed a civil lawsuit against the city and a former police officer charged with murdering him.

The suit was filed on Wednesday in the U.S. District Court in Western Michigan, according to online records, on behalf of the family of Patrick Lyoya, a 26-year-old immigrant from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Lyoya family is represented by attorneys Ben Crump and Ven Johnson, who say there is "overwhelming evidence" proving "racial profiling and excessive force took place during the traffic stop, physical altercation and eventual killing of Lyoya," according to a news release. It did not say how much the family is seeking in damages.
