A Los Angeles police officer was killed by his colleagues in a training exercise meant to mimic a mob, the officer’s mother said in a false death claim against the city.
The officer, 32, Houston Tipping, died in training at the end of May. According to the LA Times, the force’s five-year veteran suffered serious injuries to his spine as well as his head.
Tipping’s mother, Shirley Huffman, has not yet filed a lawsuit with a false death claim.
“[LA Police Chief Michael Moore] According to the Times, Officer Tipping ‘impressed his peers with his desire to go the extra mile to make the world a better place,’ she says. He was eventually assassinated in violation of the law and his civil rights.

Chief Moore and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti attended Tipping’s funeral last week. Huffman was also present but did not speak, according to the Times.
The police department has launched an investigation into the training exercise and will determine if it is too dangerous to continue. The city did not name the officers involved in the tipping deaths.
