SAN DIEGO – A Gulf war veteran and his wife say a sheriff’s deputy shot the veteran in the back, leaving him paraplegic, and that the Sheriff’s Department then lied about the shooting, claiming the veteran had shot first.

Michael and Kimberly Foster sued San Diego County and its Sheriff William Gore in Federal Court.

Kimberly Foster says she called 911 from her Alpine home on Oct. 19, 2010, “out of concern for her husband’s safety.” She says she felt that her husband, an Army medic who had served in Bosnia and the Persian Gulf, “was having a PTSD episode.”

Alpine is a distant suburb in the hills east of San Diego.

She says San Diego County Sheriff deputies and a SWAT team responded to her call.

“At approximately 1:00 pm, plaintiff Michael Foster walked outside into his back yard in broad daylight. With his back turned to the officers and without provocation, plaintiff Michael Foster was shot multiple times in the back by the SWAT team members,” the complaint states.
