(Indianapolis Star) Major Davis Jr., the man accused of killing Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer Perry Renn, is suing the late officer for $2.3 million, claiming he used "excessive deadly force" against him.
Davis claims he was unarmed when Renn shot him 11 times, "shooting me in the right cranial, the torso, abdomen and the back." The encounter happened during a backyard party in the 4000 block of Forest Manor Avenue on the city's Eastside on July 5, 2014.
Davis, who is representing himself, filed the federal lawsuit as he awaits trial for murder.
