Widow of slain DC sanitation worker sues city
WASHINGTON (AP) - The wife of a Washington sanitation worker fatally shot last year at a Department of Public Works lot a has sued the city.
Larry Hutchins of Suitland, Md., was killed Oct. 13 in a shooting that also wounded another worker. The 51-year-old's shooting remains unsolved. At the time of the shooting police said the shooter was wearing a uniform and that the shooting was not random.
The Washington Post reports that Hutchins' widow Shadone Taylor-Hutchins filed her lawsuit Friday in D.C. Superior Court. She claims the city was negligent because the facility where her husband was killed lacked functioning security cameras and was poorly lit, among other things.
