Cameron Lamb was shot and killed by a police officer in Kansas City, Missouri.
In December 2019, police officers came to Lamb’s home. They were investigating a disturbance involving Lamb’s truck. Lamb drove his car into the garage when he saw officers. Police say officers followed him into the garage and he pulled out a gun and pointed it at them. One of the officers fired several shots at Lamb and killed him.
An investigation revealed that Lamb’s left arm was hanging out of om the car, but his family claim that he was right-handed and did not have full use of his left hand as a result of an injury sustained in 2015.
In June 2021, Lamb’s family filed a lawsuit against the city and the police department, accusing them of using excessive force. In March 2022, the officer was sentenced to 6 years in prison, but his lawyers filed an appeal. The officer will remain free during the appeal process.
