Lawyer: 'Poor training' led to officer's injury

Carlton Marshall was paralyzed in a raid shooting


Dallas Morning News

DALLAS — The lawyer for a woman accused of paralyzing a Dallas police lieutenant suggested today that the officer, Carlton Marshall, wound up getting shot because the SWAT team he supervised was poorly trained.

Marisela Villa's attorney, Paul Johnson, also raised questions about how quickly SWAT team members identified themselves as police during the 2007 drug raid in which Marshall was shot.
