Man dies in officer-involved shooting in West Des Moines

Man dies in officer-involved shooting in West Des Moines Authorities say an armed man died Wednesday night following a confrontation with West Des Moines police officers. Officers were called just before 8:30 p.m. to a home in the 1000 block of Woodland Park Drive for a report of a domestic disturbance. Arriving officers were confronted by a man armed with a weapon, police said. Moments later, shots were fired. The man was injured in the shooting. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No officers were hurt in the shooting. Authorities have not released the names of the man or the officers. The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is assisting in the case.

The case of Vincent Lambert , in a vegetative state since 2008, divided France - and his own family. A quadriplegic man, who became a symbol of the right - to - die debate in France , has died after Euthanasia is illegal in France , but doctors are allowed to put terminally ill patients into deep sedation.

Doctors in France are to begin removing life support from Vincent Lambert , a psychiatric nurse who was paralysed in a road accident in 2008 and has been at the centre of a right - to - die case for more than a decade. Years of legal battles were fought between two groups of Lambert ’s family over

The 42-year-old had sustained severe brain damage following a car accident in 2008 and had been living in a vegetative state.

Medical experts had determined that his situation was irreversible.

For more than five years, legal battles have raged between his family members over whether he should be kept alive, igniting a watershed debate in the country and drawing in international bodies, the French President and even Pope Francis.

In May, that fight appeared to have finally reached its end, with a judicial ruling that allowed doctors to take Lambert off life support.

That decision, in line with the wishes of his wife and siblings, followed a similar conclusion from the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. It prompted doctors to begin the process of "passive" euthanasia, which is legal in France.

Chicago families sue after a case of mistaken identity allowed a man to be taken off life support

Chicago families sue after a case of mistaken identity allowed a man to be taken off life support Two Chicago families have sued the city and a hospital after an injured patient was incorrectly identified, and people who did not know him were given the decision to take him off life support. A wrongful death lawsuit accuses the hospital and city of being negligent and inflicting intentional emotional distress on the two families by failing to properly identify the patient. The plaintiffs are seeking more than $50,000 from each defendant. Mercy Hospital declined to comment on Thursday. A spokesperson for the City of Chicago and Chicago police did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.

Mr. Lambert ’s wife and her supporters point to multiple medical assessments that found her husband to be in an irreversible vegetative state The French state, the court concluded, was not bound by the Committee on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities’ request to keep Mr. Lambert on life support .

A Frenchman at the heart of a right - to - die case has died after doctors removed life support . The question of whether to keep Vincent Lambert in a permanently Lambert 's fate had been the subject of a bitter legal dispute over the past six years that divided both his family and public opinion in France .

Lambert's wife Rachel told RTL radio at the time that "to see him go is to see him as a freed man." She said that Lambert told her before his accident that he would not want to be kept alive in a vegetative state.

But a last-ditch effort from Lambert's devout Catholic parents, who have been campaigning to keep him alive, halted the move hours later. An appeals court ruled in their favor, concluding that support could not be withdrawn until an ongoing report by the UN's Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was completed.

French President Emmanuel Macron had rejected calls from the parents for him to issue a presidential decree to keep Lambert on life support.

The Pope also weighed in, tweeting after the initial court decision: "We pray for those who live with severe illness. Let us always safeguard life, God's gift, from its beginning until its natural end. Let us not give in to a throwaway culture."

A Frenchman at the heart of a right - to - die case has died after doctors removed life support . The question of whether to keep Vincent Lambert in a permanently Lambert 's fate had been the subject of a bitter legal dispute over the past six years that divided both his family and public opinion in France .

Last month, France's Court of Cassation overturned the appeal court ruling, allowing doctors to stop feeding Lambert on June 28.

Maître Spinosi, a lawyer representing Lambert's wife, said that decision marked "the end of the dispute."

Speaking of Lambert's passing on Thursday, his nephew François told CNN affiliate BFMTV: "It's a relief, of course, it's not sad, it puts things back in order. I hope he rests in peace."

He added that he hoped that the funeral could remain intimate and that the family can now "get along and get closer," noting the controversial long-running family legal battle.

"What happened here is a bit of an irreversible break, but it's not a tragedy."

In a statement, the Vatican expressed "sorrow" at Lambert's death, reiterating the Pope's view that "God is the only patron of life".
