Family of man shot by Euclid officer files wrongful death suit

Family of Luke Stewart to file wrongful death suit

EUCLID - The family of Luke Stewart, who was shot and killed by Euclid Police Officer Matthew Rhodes, has announced plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit Monday.

Stewart, 23, was shot and killed March 13 when he reportedly failed to comply with Rhodes' demands. Rhodes was not wearing a body camera. At one point, officers on scene could be heard suggesting they not use their radios.

Stewart's family formally announced the lawsuit in a news conference Monday afternoon. 

In August, a Grand Jury declined to issue an indictment against Rhodes.
