CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The father of a man who killed a Franconia, N.H., police officer in 2007 has asked a federal judge to reconsider his dismissal of a lawsuit against the town.

Liko Kenney fatally shot police Cpl. Bruce McKay after McKay pulled over his car and pepper-sprayed him. Bystander Gregory Floyd witnessed the shooting, picked up McKay's gun and fatally shot Kenney.

David Kenney sued Franconia officials and Floyd in 2010, saying McKay stopped Kenney's car without cause and used excessive force. Judge Paul Barbadaro dismissed the suit last month, saying McKay's actions were justified.

The Caledonian Record reports Franconia officials plan to file an objection to David Kenney's request soon.
