HAMBRICK FAMILY FILE WRONGFUL DEATH LAWSUIT
The family of a man shot and killed by a Metro police officer is suing the officer and the Metropolitan Government of Nashville seeking $30 million in damages related to the fatal officer-involved shooting of Daniel Hambrick in July 2018.
“We’re asking for nominal damages, attorney fees, and costs,” said Hambrick family attorney, Joy Kimbrough. “So, we’re asking for $30 million at a minimum.”
Ofc. Delke is also facing homicide charges in Hambrick’s shooting death. The wrongful death lawsuit accuses Officer Andrew Delke of using excessive force in violation of the Fourth Amendment. The suit also claims Metro Nashville is responsible for the Metro Nashville Police Department’s failure to implement body cameras and ongoing issues with racial discrimination and profiling.
