LODI, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California police department has released the transcript of a 911 call that preceded the fatal shooting of a Gulf War veteran by officers.

Two Lodi police officers shot and killed Parminder Singh Shergill on Jan. 25 after responding to the call. Police say he charged at them with a knife. Shergill's family disputes that and has filed a lawsuit accusing police of excessive force.

In the transcript released on Monday, a family member of Shergill's tells a 911 dispatcher that Shergill is a paranoid schizophrenic who is "going crazy," and requests for police.

Lodi police also released a photo of the knife they say Shergill was carrying on the day he was shot.

Mark Merin, a lawyer for Shergill's family, said Monday that his clients want even more information about the shooting to be made public.
