Paralyzed Amazon driver says he forgives who shot him in MO | The ...

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — A driver for Amazon who is paralyzed from the waist down after being shot in a dispute over a parking spot in Missouri is suing the accused shooter.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 21-year-old Jaylen Walker of St. Louis is seeking at least $100,000 in damages from Larry Thomlison of St. Charles in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

Thomlison, who turns 66 Thursday, was charged last week with assault and armed criminal action.

Authorities say Walker parked March 5 in a handicapped-accessible space outside a St. Charles Target store.

Police say Thomlison, who had a placard allowing him to park in handicapped-accessible spots, became angry. The men struggled and Thomlison was knocked to the ground. Police say he responded by shooting Walker in the back.
