Suit Filed Against Former Gladewater Officer

A former Gladewater police officer has been sued in connection with a deadly shooting last summer. The family of Jonathon King has filed a suit for unspecified damages against Bryan Naismith and the Gladewater Police Department. Naismith fatally shot King when he tried to flee an arrest scene last June.

In January, a grand jury cleared Naismith of wrongdoing in the shooting. The King family's lawsuit claims, "Naismith's actions were unreasonable and violated the rights of the man he shot. "
