HOUSTON (August 16, 2013)—Harris County sheriff’s Deputy Brady Pullen is suing the family of a man he shot to death after responding to a 911 call last year, alleging he and other officers were not properly warned about the danger they faced.
Pullen is seeking as much as $200,000 from Carmina Figueroa, a relative of Kemal Yazar, who confronted EMS workers and deputies who responded in December to a home in the Houston suburb of Katy.
Figueroa is listed as the home's owner.
Pullen and another deputy struggled with Yazar before shooting him.
Pullen suffered a concussion and other injuries.
An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
Pullen's attorney and Figueroa did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office declined to comment.
