HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston-area deputy is suing the family of a man he fatally shot following a 911 call last year, alleging he and others who responded were not properly warned about the danger they faced.

Harris County sheriff’s Deputy Brady Pullen is seeking up to $200,000 from Carmina Figueroa, a relative of Kemal Yazar. Officials say Yazar confronted EMS workers and deputies who responded to a home in the Houston suburb of Katy in December. Figueroa is listed as the home’s owner.

Pullen and another deputy struggled with Yazar before fatally shooting him. Pullen suffered a concussion and other injuries. An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

Pullen’s attorney and Figueroa did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment.
