(KNX 1070) -- Relatives of an assistant manager of the Silverlake Trader Joe's who was killed by a police bullet during a police chase in July have filed a lawsuit against the LAPD.

Attorneys for Mely Corado's father and brother are asking for damages, alleging excessive force, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress, in addition to a failure to adequately train officers and covering up wrongful misconduct.

Corado was killed on July 21, when police fired at a suspect who was running into the store.
