On February 7, an Orange County deputy shot and killed US Marine Sgt. Manuel "Manny" Levi Loggins Jr. while he was sitting in his GMC Yukon with his two daughters in the back seat.

It’s been nearly 4 months since Manuel Loggins, the unarmed Marine sergeant was shot to death by an Orange County sheriff’s deputy. However, official statement from the Orange County Police Department states that the “investigation continues”.

Meanwhile, the widow of Loggins, 31-year-old, has filed a wrongful-death suit in federal court seeking unspecified damages. The suit accuses the deputy who shot Loggins, Darren Sandberg, of using excessive force when he encountered the Marine in the parking lot of San Clemente High School before dawn on February 7.

The lawsuit also accused Sheriff's Department personnel of "false arrest and imprisonment" for detaining Loggins’ two daughters, ages 14 and 9, for 13 hours after the shooting. The girls were not allowed to see their mother, resulting in "humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress."
