The family of an 18-year-old North Carolina man shot and killed by a Davidson County Sheriff’s deputy last year has filed a lawsuit against the sheriff’s office and the deputy who shot him.
Civil rights attorney Ben Crump announced at a news conference on Wednesday that a civil rights lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Fred Cox’s family eight months after the teen was shot four times by Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Hill.
