SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - The family of a man who was killed in a shooting at a local barbershop in March is filing a lawsuit against the San Francisco Police Department.
In a statement released Thursday, the family of 21-year-old Jehad Eid of Suisun City announced the filing of the federal civil rights lawsuit.
Jehad was killed in March 2018 during a shooting at a local barbershop in San Francisco's Excelsior district.
"Jehad should not have died. The police were overtly aggressive in how they handled the sitation. He was a sweet kid," said Ed Eid, Jehad's uncle.
Police responded to the area of Geneva and London on reports of an armed man. When they arrived at a nearby barbershop, police made contact with several individuals and gunshots were exchanged.
He died at a local hospital.
A police officer and four others were wounded in the shooting.
