[UPDATED with $10 Million Claim Filed:] Binh Van Nguyen Shot Dead by Santa Ana Police
UPDATE NO. 2, JAN. 16, 11:57 A.M.: As expected, Le Quyen Vu Ngo, the 40-year-old wife of the late Binh Van Nguyen, has filed a $10 million claim against the City of Santa Ana over a police shooting that has lit a fire under an Orange County Vietnamese community demanding justice.
The claim, filed with city officials who refuse to comment as per policy, states that an unarmed Nguyen was sleeping in his car when the father of two was awakened by plainclothes Santa Ana police officers and, without justification, shot to death.
Wrongful death claims are routinely rejected by cities and generally followed by lawsuits filed by the plaintiffs.
