LOS ANGELES (AP) — A father who saw his son killed by Los Angeles police on live television has filed a $20 million claim with the city.

The Los Angeles Times says 80-year-old Bill Beaird wept Friday as he described watching the Dec. 13 shooting. Beaird says his son, Brian, called to say his Corvette was being chased by police but he'd done nothing wrong. The father says he advised his son to stop.

Beaird says he watched as the Corvette hit a car and spun onto a downtown sidewalk, the driver got out, raised his hands and was shot.

Preliminary reports indicate the unarmed man was shot more than 20 times.

Police Chief Charlie Beck says he's concerned about the shooting and has placed three officers on leave pending investigation.
