Gaines, 23, was shot and killed by a county tactical officer, Royce Ruby Jr., during a standoff at her Randallstown apartment in August. Ruby also shot Gaines' 5-year-old son when he fired at Gaines.

The lawsuit names four defendants – the county, Ruby, and two other county police officers, John Dowell and Allen Griffin.

Dowell and Griffin initially went to the apartment to serve warrants on Gaines and her fiance, Kareem Courtney.

County prosecutors filed no criminal charges against any officers in the shooting.

The county has declined to comment on the pending litigation.
