Shooting leads to lawsuit

DELTA – The daughter of the man shot during a 2012 standoff in new Westminster has launched a wrongful death lawsuit against the Delta police officer accused in the shooting.

 

Nousha Bayrami’s lawsuit against Const. Jordan MacWilliams alleges the officer shot Mehrdad Bayrami "suddenly, without warning or justification" as he was walking backwards away from police officers with his arms at his sides.

 

MacWilliams, who was a member of the municipal Integrated Emergency response Team at the time, was one of several officers that responded to the Starlight Casino at around 6 A.M. On Nov. 8, 2012 after calls about a domestic disturbance and an armed man. The standoff lasted for five hours before the shooting occurred.

 

The Corporation of Delta has also been named as a defendant.
