Police Face Lawsuit After Killing Innocent Man

They were at the wrong house


WFTV's Tim Barber sat down with the attorney who just filed a federal lawsuit against the Lake County Sheriff's Office and the deputy who shot an innocent man.

Andrew Scott was shot and killed in July at the Blueberry Hills Apartments in Leesburg.

Lake County deputies showed up at the wrong apartment in the middle of the night, looking for an attempted-murder suspect.

Deputies admitted they didn't identify themselves as deputies.
