HONOLULU (AP) — The family of a 16-year-old boy fatally shot by Honolulu police last month sued the city and unidentified police officers on Friday, alleging negligence, assault and battery.

The lawsuit filed by Akiwine Sykap, grandmother and legal guardian of Iremamber Sykap, and Yovita Lucio, the boy’s mother, asks a state court to award damages, reimburse costs and declare that the officers’ use of deadly force was unlawful and unauthorized.
