Ex-deputy whose son shot himself sues Wash. county

VANCOUVER, Wash. — A former Clark County sheriff's deputy filed a wrongful termination lawsuit Thursday against the county. Ed Owens alleges he was fired for questioning the safety of gun safes issued by the sheriff's office after his 3-year-old son got into a safe and accidentally shot himself.

Owens was fired Nov. 29, 2011, over violations relating to the accidental fatal shooting of his son, Ryan.

Owens is now seeking reinstatement to the sheriff's office and monetary compensation for lost wages and damage to his reputation, his attorney Gregory Ferguson said in a press conference Thursday.
