(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.
