LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A woman whose husband was shot and killed by Lawrenceville police has filed suit against the officers involved. Tenisha Felio told WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/16lGGy8 ) that she filed suit because her husband didn't deserve to die when she made a 911 call to police to report that her husband had been abusing her. The officers responding to the call in December 2010, Christopher Hyatt and Karl Hydrick, said 27-year-old James Felio was shot after trying to get one officer's gun. Tenisha Felio says her husband was not a threat and there was no need to shoot. An attorney representing the officers and the Lawrenceville Police Department, Brian Dempsey, says a thorough investigation determined the shooting was justified. Felio's attorney, James Dearing, says the officers could have used their batons or pepper spray. ___ Information from: WSB-TV, http://www.wsbtv.com/index.html
