“A Norfolk man claims a police officer shot him three years ago while his hands were up and he was pleading for his life.

“Please don’t shoot,” Marius Mitchell said during an altercation with the Norfolk officer, according to a federal lawsuit that seeks $10 million in damages, plus interest and attorney fees.

Attorneys for Mitchell and Officer Neal Robertson, who retired in December, declined to comment on the suit. In court documents, however, a defense attorney denied many of the allegations, including that Mitchell was shot with his hands up.”
