While the boyfriend was apprehended, the complaint says, an officer in the bedroom with Amir had ordered him to put his shoes on and was examining the child's shoe with a flashlight while keeping his automatic rifle aimed at him. Then, the officer's gun discharged, with a bullet shattering the boy's kneecap as he sat on the edge of a bed, the family said.

"Mom, they shot me," Amir screamed, according to the complaint describing the 5 a.m. raid in Markham, south of Chicago. "I can't move it," he said in reference to his right leg.

"What is that? There are children in the house," his mother, Crystal Worship, responded after hearing the sound of the "deafeningly loud" gunshot, according to the suit. "Are you shooting them?"

The suit alleges that the gun's "safety lock position" was not on, even though "the room had already been cleared and secured minutes earlier, and it was obvious that Amir was a child who was no threat to officers."
