(KSL News) -- New details today in a lawsuit filed against the West Valley Police Department. The suit was filed over the shooting death of Bounmy Ousa.

Ousa was shot and killed during a confrontation with officers back in July. The family's lawyers say the suit claims wrongful death and conspiracy.

Clark Newall, Plaintiff's Attorney: "There are claims against the West Valley police department for wrongfully and deliberately ignoring the extreme danger posed by one of the officers involved in that shooting."

Ousa family attorneys also believe one of the officers involved in the shooting was abusing steroids. They've turned evidence from their own investigation over to the FBI.

The West Valley City Police Department says it will not comment on the case.
