WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) As a grieving mother tried to hold her son’s body after he was killed by a Florida sheriff’s deputy, another deputy pushed her to the hospital floor, her husband testified Thursday.
Dick Adams told a federal civil court jury he and his wife Lydia rushed 110 miles after learning their unarmed 24-year-old son, Seth Adams, had been shot by Palm Beach County Sgt. Michael Custer on May 16, 2012. The Adamses are seeking unspecified millions in a lawsuit that alleges the shooting was unjustified. Custer contends he fired after Seth Adams attacked him.

Having the opportunity to console devastated families, Kuhn was tragically thrown on the opposite end of the spectrum three years ago.
In September 2013, George’s son William Kuhn, was found dead in Dogwood Park in Goose Creek. He was legally blind, according to George, and had been fatally shot in the back of the head, after which the shooter stole William’s vehicle and fled the scene, officials reported.
Stephon Johnson, 27, of Goose Creek, was suspected of the murder and captured

DES MOINES — The sounds of nearby gunfire last Christmas Eve. It’s something no 7-year-old should ever have to hear. “I heard the gunshots and then we both ducked down,” said Florence Paige’s daughter. They were at home when Danny Cisneros was shot to death in the stairwell of the apartment next door in the Pacific Ridge neighborhood. “It needs to be a safe area for my kids so I’m really upset that it happened,” said Paige.
Cisneros was found with his wife and son trying to stop the bleeding. “The victim was here in the foyer on the steps leading down to the apartment. The shooter was all the way over there near the back-end of that white car that’s parked,” said Des Moines Police Det. Fred Gendreau. The family was homeless. “Christmas Eve night. It was raining so they came into
