Meghan Hoyer, The Courier-Journal January 22, 2001, Monday Ind/Indiana Copyright 2001 The Courier-Journal The Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY.) January 22, 2001, Monday Ind/Indiana (AUSTIN, Texas) -- The widow of a Scott County man killed in an Austin liquor store has sued the Austin Police Department, claiming that if officers had been properly trained, her husband wouldn't have been shot by an agitated gunman last year.
Tamra Ross said she feels conflicted over trying to win damages stemming from her husband's death. But she said she believes officers could have saved the father of her three children.
''I say all the time it's not about money,'' she said. ''No amount of money in the world can bring him back - then again, I think it is about money, because my husband isn't here to provide for his children.''
