Lawsuits

Bah, Oumou as Adm of Bah, Mohamed vs City of New York, et al.
Case # 13CV06690, U.S. District Court - Southern District NY, September 23, 2013
Amended Complaint
Description: Officers, instead of an ambulance, responded to a 911 call made by Mohamed Bah's mother reporting that her son was having a mental health crisis. Officers then busted down the door of his Bah's apartment and shot him 8 times. There are inconsistencies in the officer's stories and clear violations of NYPD policy for how to deal with emotionally disturbed persons.
