WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Delays providing documents in a lawsuit over the fatal 2012 shooting of an unarmed white man in Wichita have led to sanctions.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2cquKVc ) reports that U.S. Magistrate Judge Kenneth Gale ordered the sanctions this month after finding “inexcusable” but not intentional delays from the city’s legal team. The amount to be paid is in dispute.

At issue is a lawsuit filed by the mother of Troy Lanning II. He was 24 when he was shot while running from a stolen vehicle. Wichita Police Officer Randy Williamson’s lawyer has said the officer saw Lanning reach into a bag and feared he had a gun.

Williamson later was accused of filing a false report in another case. He entered a plea and is no longer with the department.
