The family of a World War II vet, who died after Park Forest police fired bean-bag rounds at him, filed a lawsuit against the police department.

Last July, police responded to a call from an assisted living facility where 95-year-old John Wrana lived.

Police said they tried to subdue wrana– who had a knife, a long shoehorn, a cane, and had become belligerent.

Park Forest officer, Craig Taylor, fired five bean-bag rounds at close range. Wrana died the next day.

Taylor is charged with felony reckless conduct.

The lawsuit– seeking five-million dollars– claims police violated Wrana’s civil rights which led to his wrongful death.
