A Seymour law firm has taken on a case involving the illegal sale of a firearm that ultimately led to the shooting of an Indianapolis police officer in 2011, leaving him seriously injured.
Roger Pardieck with Pardieck Law Firm, 100 N. Chestnut St., filed the suit this week in Marion County Superior Court 11 to represent 52-year-old Dwayne H. Runnels, a patrol officer for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and resident of Marion County, who was shot in the line of duty by a convicted felon.
According to federal law, a convicted felon is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
Pardieck said the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence Legal Action Project in Washington, D.C., reached out to his office with the case. The center works to pass, enforce, and protect laws and public policy that address gun violence at the federal and state level.
