BALTIMORE - The officer shot during a police training exercise has filed a $50 million lawsuit.
Officer Raymond Gray was shot at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills back in February. He and his lawyer, A. Dwight Pettit, claim the Baltimore Police Department broke its own rules when training officer William Kern pointed a loaded weapon at Gray.
Gray was shot at point blank range in the head. Pettit says Gray lost an eye and will need medical care for the rest of his life. He hopes the lawsuit will also make BPD do a better job with its training programs.
The suit names Commissioner Anthony Batts, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the city council, Officer Kern and the Baltimore County Police Department as defendants.
