Martavious Banks after his release from prison Banks was shot by police on September 17, 2018. He then spent nearly a year in jail before being released last month after pleading guilty to several charges, including evading arrest and reckless driving.

Police said the three officers at the scene the night Banks was shot did not have their body cameras on during the exchange. It started as a traffic stop that Banks fled from before officers opened fire.

Banks’ lawyers claim officers told him they ran his tags and found out he did not have insurance. MPD vehicles do not have technology to be able to find out insurance status from tag numbers. The lawsuit claims Banks knew this, and feared for his life, and that’s why he ran from police.

The state is facing its first legal challenge to the governor's vaping ban, which he announced earlier this week. Gov. Charlie Baker declared a public health emergency on Tuesday, banning the sale of all vaping products for four months. Behram Agha, the owner of Vapor Zone at the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers, is asking a judge for a preliminary injunction lifting the ban. Agha claims he was denied due process and that the ban has a crippling effect on small businesses. Agha, who also owns shops in Ipswich, Saugus and Norton, said he has laid off 11 employees and can’t pay his bills if ban persists.
