Ramapough family to sue over police shooting


The family of a Ramapough Lenape man who was fatally shot by a New Jersey park police officer is filing a civil rights lawsuit.

Emil Mann, 45, was killed on April 1, 2006, during a scuffle with park police officers. It's still unclear exactly what happened on that day.

Details of the lawsuit are being released today. It names the officer, the state and others as defendants.
