AUSTIN, TEXAS (KXAN) — A wrongful death trial for the family of a Black man shot by Austin police officers in 2017 begins Monday.

Landon Nobles, 24 at the time, was shot and killed by APD officers Sgt. Richard Egal and Cor. Maxwell Johnson on May 7, 2017, after a crowd dispersed from in front of bars on East Sixth Street in downtown Austin.

Brian Manley, then-APD police chief, said officers fired at Nobles because he fired at the officers.

The lawsuit says Nobles was shot “in the back multiple times” and that several non-police witnesses said Nobles didn’t even show a gun during the incident and “posed no danger.”
