LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- It's been a year to the day that Gulf War veteran Stanley Gibson was shot in one of Metro's more controversial police shootings.
It indirectly led to many changes in how Metro trains its officers to use deadly force.
Gibson sat in a car at an apartment complex at Smoke Ranch and Rainbow one year ago. He was unarmed, and his widow, Rondha, also said he was confused and off his medications when he was eventually shot to death.
Since being shot several times with bullets from an assault rifle, Gibson's death has led to many changes for metro.
The ACLU and NAACP got involved, and an arm of the Department of Justice reviewed Metro's use-of-force policies. That prompted Sheriff Doug Gillespie to announce new changes and promise more transparency from his department.
But for Rondha Gibson, the troubles still continue. She's testified before a grand jury, still visits her husband's gravesite often and -- perhaps she says most troubling for her -- she misses him every day and says she still has not been able to pay for his burial.
Rondha Gibson says her attorney filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Metro late Tuesday night. She'll also appear at a downtown event later Wednesday, commemorating the one-year anniversary of her husband's death.
