KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The family of Donnie Sanders, a Black man killed by a Kansas City police officer in 2020, filed a lawsuit Thursday against the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners and the officer who shot him.

The family of Donnie Sanders, a Black man killed by a Kansas City police officer nearly two years ago, is suing the Kansas City police board, accusing its members of failing to train police officers in the use of deadly force.

The federal lawsuit filed Thursday names the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners and the officer who shot the 47-year-old. The suit, which seeks at least $10 million in damages, alleges that officer Blayne Newton used excessive force when he shot Sanders.

On March 12, 2020, Newton followed Sanders to an alley near Wabash and Prospect avenues after Sanders failed to signal as he was turning. According to police, Sanders got out of his car and ran. Newton fired five shots, hitting Sanders three times, in the abdomen, elbow and hip. He died the following morning.

Newton told investigators he thought Sanders had a gun. Read more.
