COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

A Coeur d'Alene woman whose backyard became the scene of a deadly police shooting plans to sue the City of Coeur d'Alene.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports that Sarah Shields filed a tort claim in November seeking $18,000 for emotional distress and damage from bullets entering her house and furniture.

Coeur d'Alene Police say that on June 6 officers responded to a domestic disturbance call that ended in the neighbor's yard when 28-year-old Thomas L. White of Coeur d'Alene refused to drop a weapon and exchanged gunfire with three officers.

No officers were injured but White died at the scene.

Shields says officers used excessive force resulting in the loss of a sense of security in her home.

She also says insurance won't cover bullet damage to the house.
