DETROIT (CN) – A security officer at the Selfridge Air National Guard base shot a man to death as he drove slowly onto the base, smiling and waving, through the main entrance, which was open, and not blocked or obstructed in any way, the Estate of Timothy Whisman claims in Federal Court.
Whisman’s family claims that without warning, Sgt. Charlie Mitchell shot Whisman in the back in his car, then pulled the mortally wounded man from it and rather than summoning medical aid, put him in handcuffs.
The defendants allegedly killed Whisman without reason on May 17, 2006.
Here are the defendants: 127th Security Force of the Michigan Air National Guard, Major P. Regualos, Sgt. David Christian, Sgt. William Farrell Heatley, Jr., Sgt. Jonathan Craig Southern, Senior Airman Raymon Wallace King, Sgt. Charlie Mitchell, and Sgt. Keith Allen Werhnyak.
Whisman’s family is represented by Patricia Maceroni of Mt. Clemens, Mich.
