GLORIETA (AP) — The father of a man shot and killed by a New Mexico State Police officer has filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit.
KRQE-TV reports that the federal lawsuit was recently filed by Daniel T. Pauly, the father of Samuel Pauly.
Samuel Pauly died in October 2011 after he was shot in the chest at his Glorieta home by State Police officers investigating a report involving his brother Daniel Pauly. Police say they were responding to a report of road rage on an area highway.
The father also filed a wrongful death lawsuit in state court last year.
A Santa Fe grand jury later ruled that the shooting was justified.
A spokesman for the agency did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press.
