Family of Connecticut man killed in police shooting intends to seek $10 million in damages


(CNN) The family of a Connecticut man fatally shot by a state trooper after a high-speed chase is planning to seek $10 million in a wrongful death claim against law enforcement authorities. Attorneys for the family of Mubarak Soulemane, 19, who was shot and killed January 15 after a reported carjacking, filed notice with the state claims commissioner this week of their intent to sue the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection and state police officials. A separate notice of claim was filed to seek unspecified monetary damages from the town of West Haven and local police. "I pray no other family has to experience this pain," Soulemane's mother, Omo Klusum Mohammed, told CNN affiliate News 12 Connecticut . The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, which oversees the state police, did not immediately respond to a CNN request to comment on Friday.
