Derek Copp, GVSU student shot in drug raid, sues Ottawa County sheriff, deputy

GRAND RAPIDS — Derek Copp, the Grand Valley State University student who was shot in the chest during a 2009 drug raid, has sued Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department and the deputy who shot him, Ryan Huizenga.

The lawsuit was filed today in U.S. District Court.

“This was not an accident,” attorney Frederick Dilley wrote in court documents. “Defendant, Huizenga either intended to shoot plaintiff, knowing he was unarmed; intended to shoot plaintiff in the mistaken belief that he was armed, or recklessly fired at the plaintiff knowing he would kill or injure him.”
