A federal civil rights lawsuit has been filed against the city and a group of 25th district police officers.

31-year-old Erick Fields says he was fixing his car in his own garage last year, when police snuck onto his property and shot him in the stomach. The west side Chicago man reportedly needed multiple blood transfusions and emergency surgery to save his life. And he’s saddled with half-a-million dollars worth of medical bills in a shooting that his lawyer says was completely unjustified.

“The problem here is that they silently crept through his yard, onto the property of an innocent man,” according to civil rights lawyer Torreya Hamilton. “And then they shot him in his own garage without warning.”

Hamilton filed the civil rights lawsuit in federal court, Thursday morning.
