WAUKESHA — The family of a man who was shot and killed by police officers at Waukesha Memorial Hospital last spring is suing the city of Waukesha and the involved police officers, alleging excessive force. Randy Ashland was shot and killed by Waukesha police officers Ian Dekarske and Ryan Solberg at the hospital’s parking lot on April 15, 2020. At the time, prosecutors said that Ashland was armed with a gun and refused officers’ orders to drop the weapon. Police said at the time that Ashland further threatened the officers. That’s when the officers opened fire on Ashland. He was brought to the emergency room for treatment, and later died from the injuries.
