Ricardo Muñoz's mother has filed a lawsuit claiming the police failed to explore other avenues before using deadly lethal force against her son.

The mother of Ricardo Muñoz, a Lancaster County man who was shot and killed by police after running at an officer with a knife, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit and named the Lancaster City Police Department, the city, and Lancaster County as defendants.

13, 2020, Muñoz, 27, was shot and killed by a police officer responding to a reported domestic disturbance call at a home on the 300 block of Laurel Street in Lancaster.

In this incident, Lancaster County District Attorney Heather Adams determined that the officer was clearly justified in firing four shots at Muñoz, as Muñoz chased him with a large knife – clearly presenting a threat to the officer’s life.

The officer had no time to speak with Muñoz, as he immediately charged the officer with a knife. Between four and five seconds elapsed from the time Munoz emerged from a doorway, chasing the officer, to when the officer fired shots.

At the scene, police recovered a large fixed-blade, hunting-style knife next to Muñoz’s body, which he used in his charge at the officer.

His sister told FOX43 that Muñoz's mother called the Lancaster Bureau of Police and Crisis Intervention on the day of the incident, hoping that Muñoz could receive help.
