NASHVILLE (CN) - Unable to speak Spanish, a police officer shot a man repeatedly in the back at point-blank range after the man asked the officer if he could be of any help, the now wheelchair-bound man claims in Federal Court.
Jose Calderon Pacheco sued the City of Springfield and its Police Department, Police Chief Mike Wilhoit and Officer Will Johnson, who allegedly shot him repeatedly in what appears to have been a simple misunderstanding.
Calderon, who speaks little or no English, says he got out of his truck sometime before midnight a year ago today after seeing a police car pull in behind him. "Upon noticing the police car, plaintiff exited his vehicle and inquired of the officer if he could be of any assistance," according to the complaint.
