Family To File Suit, Says Police Pointed Guns While Raiding Wrong Home – CBS Chicago
Back in August, the family said officers shattered their door and stormed their apartment. The Problem is that it wasn’t the right address.
Toni Tate and her two adult children and baby girl were met with handguns, and at least one officer had a high-powered rifle.
““I kept saying: ‘I have a baby! I have a baby!’ And it was like he wasn’t listening,” Cierra said. “So when the man came around the corner, he was pointing his gun at me while she was in my arms, and I just holding her and just crying and just praying that they didn’t shoot me, because he didn’t see what was in my arms.”
Records show the man they were looking for has never lived at the Tates’ address and has an address in Milwaukee.
An attorney for the family will be filing a federal lawsuit later Thursday morning.
