Gunman slain after deputy shot in Georgia
CUMMING, Ga. (AP) Court records show the man accused of shooting a deputy at a Georgia courthouse filed a civil rights complaint against the sheriff's department in 2013.
Authorities say Dennis Marx was armed with guns, explosives and other supplies when he arrived at the courthouse Friday morning. He died at the scene after being shot. It's unclear whether the injured deputy shot Marx.
Dennis Marx's complaint accused the sheriff's department of using excessive force and illegal searches. Marx says in the complaint that officers hit him when he was standing with his hands up, used chemical agents to make him believe an explosion or fire had occurred and used an extra set of handcuffs that cut off circulation to his hands.
An attorney representing the sheriff's department in the case was not immediately available.
