The family of an 18-year-old who was shot and killed after brandishing a knife at two Medford, Ore., police officers has filed a $2 million wrongful-death lawsuit against the city. Family members called police in January 2012 when a fight broke out as they were cooking dinner, the Medford Mail Tribune reported Wednesday. When officers arrived, two stood near the front door as Elias Ruiz came out, wearing a protective vest and armed with a butcher knife that he waved at the officers. The family alleges that the city failed to train its officers adequately for such situations.
