Claim Filed Against City Seeks Admission Salinas Police Wrongfully Killed Carlos Mejia
by Alex Darocy
On May 27, attorney John Burris announced at a press conference held at Salinas City Hall that his law firm is representing the family of Carlos Mejia, who was killed by officers with the Salinas Police Department on May 20. He explained how the family would be pursuing legal action against the city as an avenue for justice. "Unless they admit to wrongfully having killed Mr. Mejia, and pay him substantial damages, we intend to file a civil rights lawsuit in the very near future," Burris said.
