Four young men driving a Volkswagen sedan were killed in a head-on crash near Chester on Maryland's Eastern Shore. The accident happened at around 4 p.m. on April 10. Those killed were between the ages of 18 and 19. The local volunteer fire department responded to the accident and firefighters recognized one of the victims as an emergency medical technician and firefighter who worked for their department.
At a vigil for her brother, the sister of a Maryland man involved in a fatal shoot out with a Montgomery County police officer told reporters that her family wants to ensure that no other family will experience the pain they're going through. That's why she and her relatives have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Police Department, claiming that the officer who shot her brother exercised excessive force and was not properly trained to use his weapon.
