Milwaukee Police Department sued by family of man killed in crash

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The family of a man killed in a 2019 police pursuit in Milwaukee is suing the MPD officers involved.

Nineteen-year-old Lequon McCoy was driving near 12th and Locust in August 2019 when he was hit and killed by the driver of a stolen car. 

MPD officers were chasing that stolen car prior to the deadly collision.

McCoy's family alleges the four officers involved in the high-speed chase acted negligently, saying they put innocent bystanders at risk.
