Eau Claire County, its sheriff’s department, and the city of Augusta are being sued by the family of a man who was shot to death by law enforcement officers three years ago. The suit was filed last Friday by family members of Tyler Meier. Meier was 46 years old when he was killed between Augusta and Fairchild in March 2019. The Wisconsin Department of Justice investigated and declared the shooting by Augusta Police Officer Levi Stumo and Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Eaton was justified. The suit states Meier suffered from an anxiety disorder and the way officers handled him provoked his response that led to the shooting.
