Giuseppe Particianone, 33, was shot and killed by police officers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In April 2020, police were responding a call about shooting. The police opened fire after a woman allegedly pointed a gun at one of the officers. As a result of the shooting, several bullets hit the residential building where Particianone was at that moment. He was shot in the abdomen and soon died at a local hospital from his injuries.
Several firearms were seized from the scene, according to police. According to a lawsuit filed by the victim’s family in June 2021, Particianone “was shot while being between his own kitchen and living room.” In addition to wrongful death, the lawsuit alleges excessive force, assault and battery. The family seeks an unspecified amount of compensation.
One of the police officers was charged with manslaughter, as well as violating the rules for handling firearms. The case is pending before the District Attorney.

“Giuseppe’s family has been devastated by his death, and we ask that the city of Philadelphia do what’s right and implement policies to prevent tragedies like this from ever happening again,” said Ross, a founding partner of Ross Feller Casey. “No amount of money will bring Giuseppe back, but the family feels that a lawsuit is the only way to obtain the justice that Giuseppe deserves.”

The initiative group has requested the clarification from US President Joseph Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland. The initiative group believes it is important to fight against police brutality and, if necessary, will provide legal and financial assistance to the family of the victim.
