LAKE COUNTY, Fla. - The family of a man mistakenly killed by a Lake County sheriff's deputy has hired a well-known local attorney.
Nejame also showed reporters the apartment where Scott was shot at 1:30 a.m. on July 15.
The walls in Scott's Leesburg apartment are full of bullet holes.
"This action, this arrogant action by law enforcement, by the sheriff of Lake County will cost the taxpayers of Lake County millions of dollars because the law was not followed," said Nejame.
Nejame re-created the night the victim was shot to death by a Lake County sheriff's deputy. The demonstration included a poster board of the angle of the bullets through the door and a neighbor who heard it happen.
"I only heard five. When they opened fire, it was 'Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam!' They just kept shooting," said neighbor Debra Brown.
Nejame said when Scott heard somebody pounding on his door at early in the morning he had every right to answer it with a gun in his hand.
They were actually after Scott's neighbor Jonathon Brown in connection with an attempted murder charge.
Nejame insists not identifying themselves as law enforcement officers flies in the face of both state and
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting.
