MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin woman is suing the homeowner who fatally shot her son as he tried hiding from police in the man’s porch nearly three years ago.
Twenty-year-old Bo Morrison of West Bend was killed in March 2012 as he reportedly fled from an underage drinking party in Slinger. The Washington County district attorney determined that homeowner Adam Kind acted in self-defense when he encountered Morrison in the darkened room and killed him with a single gunshot.
WITI-TV reports Morrison’s mother, Lauri Morrison, is suing Kind and his insurance company.
An attorney representing Morrison’s family calls Bo Morrison’s death “a tragedy that could have been avoided.”
Kind’s attorney says his client “feels terrible” about Morrison’s death and regrets that he “must again have his actions scrutinized in the legal system.”
