Family of Unarmed Man Fatally Shot by Fresno Police Officers

The family Freddy Ceteno, an unarmed and mentally ill man who was shot to death by Fresno Police officers last year, filed suit against the police department for excessive force and civil rights violations. The incident, which occurred on September 3rd of 2015, was recorded by a police body camera. Ceteno was shot multiple times after being confronted by police officers as he was walking down the street. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer defended the shooting, saying the officers believed Ceteno had a gun. Attorneys for Ceteno’s family have called the shooting ‘an assassination’.
