Lodi Residents Demand Answers in Police Shooting of Veteran

 
Posted Thursday, May 8th 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

Those upset about an investigation in the fatal shooting of military veteran with psychological problems by Lodi police are not giving up their push for answers. Many were in attendance at the Lodi City Council meeting last night.

It was a packed house with several dozen people reportedly looking to air their grievances to councilmembers.  

They called for the city to fund an intensive Crisis Intervention Team training program for Lodi police officers.

In addition, they complained it has taken far too long for the investigation into the shooting death of Parminder Shergill, who officers say came at them with a knife and refused orders to stop.  

Family members still want to know why those officers had to shoot Shergill 14 times.  

Councilmembers couldn't legally respond, since the complaints were not an agenda item.  

Speakers were encouraged to meet with individuals councilmembers.
