(CNN) Vanessa Bryant is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and Sheriff Alex Villanueva for a photo leak of the helicopter crash that killed her husband, NBA legend Kobe Bryant, their daughter Gianna, and seven others in January. The civil claim, filed Thursday in LA Superior Court, seeks undisclosed damages to remedy civil rights violations, negligence, emotional distress, and violation of privacy. The sheriff's department said it does not comment on pending litigation.
LA County Sheriff's deputies fatally shot a Black man during a confrontation Monday afternoon. It happened in South LA and sparked protests at the scene of the encounter, reports CNN. At about 3:15 p.m. local time two deputies tried to stop a Black man riding a bicycle. They say he was "in violation of vehicle codes," but when they approached, he got off the bike and ran. Brandon Dean told reporters that deputies caught up to the suspect about a block away.
