CHICAGO (AP) — A woman whose brother was fatally shot during last summer’s unrest in suburban Chicago has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that two paramedics allowed a photo to be taken of the dying man. She also alleges that a retired fire department lieutenant posted it on Facebook along with a disparaging caption. In the lawsuit, Adriana Cazares contends that her brother, Victor Cazares Jr., was shot by an unknown gunman on June 1 after going to a grocery store in the town of Cicero. She said he went there to “discourage any criminal conduct” amid widespread unrest following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
